    I tried starting firefox with MOZ_ACCELERATED=11 and it showed nothing *g* (the window didn't even appear)

    Not sure how they are "not there yet" - on Nvidia drivers i got 60 fps on ubuntu with gtx260.

    On my hd 5770 i get 90fps under windows. There was a reddit thread where mozilla guy told me that its my xrender not performing as it should and i guess he is the one to believe.

    yeah, some exceptions seems to be some intel graphics

    besides that fglrx seems faster than the open drivers

    Firefox rendering performance on Linux is appalling, as this test shows again. I should really migrate to one of these Webkit based browsers once I have the time.

    Actually FF4 seems to be faster than their previous browsers in normal use cases. It's still bloody slow though on that hack test page but at least keeps responding here. Decided to give it a try.
