And WebKit started as a fork of KHTML, Apple thought it was easier than writing their own engine (And Google decided the same)

Zlip792, once more thank you for your Interesting/Important bugs list, always appreciated, I always come to this topic to find your posts
But let's be honest Firefox performance sucks... And yes, I am a Firefox user, been using it for the last 8 years.
I don't care about browser benchmarks, most of them are pointless. """" woohoo I'm 1ms faster than you!!!! """"
What I care is that I have PC's where I install Firefox and not only have I to turn off HWA but sometimes uninstall it completely.
It's GUI get's stuck on "Not responding" loops many times. It can't even use more than a core. And most netbooks I came across just run it horribly.
My Asus 1201N, with a dual core Atom, overclocked to 2.0GHz, with 4GB of RAM, ION GPU with 512 Ram, runs it like crap, HWA is off always.It's new tab, close tab animation is like watching a turtle go from left to right on my 24" screen!
Seriously ever since Electrolysis was canceled (Snappy and Super Snappy don't have the same goals, or have any ambition like it had), I lost hope that Firefox will be a better product from a performance standpoint in the near (or even longer) future.
Quite honestly, In the beginning of 2013 I'm going to give Chrome a shot. If the extensions do work like the ones I use in Firefox I'll probably just jump ship.
Is this why the video on this page doesn't play in Nightly, but does in IE?
