I'd like to see a session on:

  • Performance profiling how-to. Our web-browser-built-on-top-of-FF3 suffers from slow start-up, and we had difficulty profiling it. We tried vtune, but it kept crashing on start-up. But even if it did work, it's hard to profile both c++ part and javascript at the same time (sometimes it's easier to understand what's going on from C++, sometimes from Javascript).
  • Memory usage profiling how-to. Again, it's hard to figure out if this should be done from Javascript or from C++. What tools to use?
