Javascript Speed

I have been working on a new script that will “fly” collages out from an album. It was using an effect from I am much closer, and am in the process of gathering images to post before I call it done. I tested it with Safari, Windows Explorer 6, and Firefox 3.0. I have to say, it was crazy smooth in Safari and Explorer. I was disapointed in Firefox. It is a little jerky. It was in development, but I figured that was just something to live with until I tried the other browsers.

There is hope. Firefox 3.1 is in beta (as of October), and it is supposed to have Tracemonkey support among other things. All the browsers have been madly working on their javascript kung fu it would appear. I haven’t tried the beta, but here’s hoping for a smoother ride once it hits prime time.
