Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"As opposed to Firefox 4 which introduced a new UI, tab
panorama, jetpack, sync and apptabs, Firefox 5 sure does feel a bit
'light' on the big features side.
"It does however have at least on amazing under the hood feature
that will make Firefox 5 the fastest Mozilla browser ever.
Unfortunately Mozilla's product people haven't chosen to productize
the feature name but that doesn't make it any less important.
"Sort Idle HTTP Connections by CWND - is a new Firefox 5 feature
that I personally see as Mozilla's open web response to Google's
SPDY, though they are a bit different. SPDY is focused on TCP
optimizations while Firefox 5 is a bit more specific to HTTP."
