Faster than the current Mozilla builds of Tamarin, which have not been optimized and in many situations are still slower than SpiderMonkey.

On the other hand, it bears noting that Tamarin isn't going to make it into shipping code until Mozilla 2.0--presumably that will be Firefox 4, but it's still so far off that I believe that determination hasn't even been made yet. Whereas on past experience I would expect SquirrelFish to be in a shipping Safari build much sooner.

+ - Microsoft Fails to Gain Approval for OOXML->

Andy Updegrove writes: "Microsoft's bid to gain approval for its OOXML specification in the first round of global voting has failed. I now have official confirmation of that fact, and expect to have final numbers soon. In the meantime, Microsoft has just issued a press release, putting the best spin it can on the results. That release is titled "Strong Global Support for Open XML as It Enters Final Phase of ISO Standards Process."The release focuses on the degree of participation (51 National Bodies), and level of "support" (74% of all qualified votes, without differentiating between P and O countries).It also refers to this level of support at "this preliminary stage of the process," and compares it "favorably" to the number of countries participating in the votes to consider ODF and PDF, but without mentioning percentage levels of support, which would include Observer as well as Participating member votes.The drama will now switch to the long run up to the February 25 — 29 Ballot Resolution Meeting, and to how much Microsoft will be willing to change in OOXML in order to convert a sufficient number of no votes to yeses, in order to finally gain approval, if it can, for its beleaguered specification."
