how fast is it?

by Jaqui In reply to Javascript Showdown: Spee ...

dead slow, since javascript doesn't run on ANY browser I use.

it's a severe security risk and will not be enabled without huge amounts of cash being deposited into my account for the javascript author's stupidity.

If you want performance

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to Javascript Showdown: Spee ...

don't use it at all.
Save your self, time effort and trouble of installing another browser and brushing off a dusty copy of IE.

Actually I find the firefox figures comforting, considering the the number of security threats propagated by this cheap *** foolishness. May be it's checking things out instead of just running it and crossing it's pointers.
