^ If everything went well then it may...

Another arewe___ site is up now , http://arewestableyet.com/ , and it is awkward to see Aurora/Nightly to be more stable , or maybe it has to do with the amount of testers .

Does anyone else find it odd that the Facebook Messenger for Firefox addon doesn't have an "update your status" feature? Kinda strange...

My guess - a lot of the general public have weird setups, like random toolbars and plugins. Beta testers are normally better at keeping things sane, which would sometimes offset the greater inherent instability in betas.

Currently if you see last few comments on Australis bug, another dev mentioned that Australis regress their performance considerably on low spec notebooks and even on i7 level PC it regress performance, so I don't think it gonna land with these regression which means it will be further delayed.

yeah, i cant see it coming in around Fx21 if not Fx22. i think people with low spec computers will have to opt for a browser like Chrome, its been my opinion for a long time that gecko is bloated. an ya wonder why AOL before Netscape Died never Endorsed it, they always used internet explorer as default. but IMO Australis will come quicker than you think, the devs dont care about people that have slow systems. i myself use Chrome as my Default

slso V4 of Australis https://bugzilla.moz...i?id=738491#c78 which seems to fix a bit

Even I don't like Australis design and this change is bumper for me. I agree if only for one or two cycles, Firefox dev try to look into old dead code cleanup and less importing of new and new libraries then they can make a good improvement, like less code less maintenance code, faster build times but structure detailed code, C++11 compliance as much as they can and what not. So there is no doubt yes Gecko is bloated.
I personally don't like Chrome but on laptops where you set Power plan I noticed severe degradation of performance from Firefox Nightly even although that lappy was of i5 and 4 GB RAM. So I think several things to be done before Firefox could reach its prime time again.
