Tracemonkey - the parade of speedy animals continues

As if responding to the Squirrelfish initiative by the Safari team, Firefox now has its own little baby to show off. We will be seeing performance that is very close to native C speed with Javascript in the very near future.

Combined with stuff like this, and the recent proposals in the HTML5 spec, we could be seeing full blown games being delivered from the browser a few years from now.

I love the direction things are going: we are seeing visible improvements across the board for all the major complaints people have about the web platform: more powerful APIs, lightning fast performance, and standardization :)
