Project Updates


  • Last week was a great week, performance-wise.
    • The URL bar merge caused a regression because of a CSS rule that wasn't specific enough, which made the back button enable / disable when tab closing. This got fixed in bug 916946.
    • We were transitioning the opacity of tabs being closed even though they're not supposed to be visible in the first place. This got fixed in bug 919541
    • We're going to try moving the linear-gradient texture from CSS into the stroke image, which should save us some time as well. This is in bug bug 921038.
    • We're going to try switching our curve background drawing from clip-paths to SVG curves. Coupled with SVG caching (bug 764299), this has the potential to wipe out our Windows TART regressions. This is being investigated in bug 921051.
    • We've begun re-orienting our investigations to OS X, since we're still regressing TART there a bit (~7% on 10.6).
    • More details are in the weekly Australis Performance Report that mconley posted to firefox-dev.
