The 16b5 is running MUCH FASTER than any browser I have installed. The difference from the previous version is gaudy!

The patches have passed review, but it's always possible more issues could be found that hold it back (like Display List based invalidation, it passed review, passed tests, and proceeded to break random things for users when it landed)

Yeah, based on today's posts to that bug report, it should land in the next few builds.

Hey guys. Whenever I click "Search Google for "something goes here" " it redirects me to the new tab. I don't want to switch tabs. If I want, I'll click on the newly tab. Any way to fix this? Much appreciated!! :) :)

Many things happened... but I switched to Opera..
But still I will tell you what happened.
Thebes Layer related bug fixed which was holding back azure content acceleration, slow path for gdi fallback fixed, Input slowdown one bug regression from FF16 also fixed.

Now recently DLBI also landed and Stub Installed not to mention HiDPI support for Mac OS X.

HiDPI should land in tomorrow's build, but it still probably won't run smoothly as there still seems to be some plugin scaling issues. Will give it a try when the update get pushed. I have a feeling I will be back to using chrome by the end of the day if plugin support is too messy.

Today's nightly seems to have all sorts of graphical issues. Mouse over seems to paint the missing elements.

those tabs made me dry reach, i am glad they aren't taking the ability to change them via themes out otherwise IMO they would lose a lot of long time users myself included

Yeah, I've switched back to firefox on my desktop computer, much more responsive now. Still fairly laggy UI at times on my laptop though.
