  • Show detailed rendering performance comparison to 1.8. [ Sorta done, blocking on]
  • Printing
    • Restore win32 printing performance (rendering only, not layout) to acceptable (Fx2 or close) levels [Not done, but not at risk.]
  • "advanced" (svg, canvas) graphics performance
    • implement plan to replace or improve pixman
