Accessibility Status Update [marco]

  • Firefox 4
    • Perf bugs bug 566103, bug 571532 and bug 541618 landed late last week. We're working through some slight regressions/crashers that are now showing up like bug 571459 and bug 571246.
    • Also expecting another perf boost from bug 572394. This is currently in review.
    • Overall, Firefox 4 will be noticeably faster for both Windows and Linux users using assistive technologies. page load times, updates on heavily dynamic pages etc.
    • Note that much of this didn't make alpha 5, but will be in the next release (beta1?) and is currently being dog-fed on the nightlies.
