1. Faster rendering overall - Is it just me, or are pages rendering faster? This is really subjective from my end. Maybe my broadband provider happened to fix things on the week I upgraded, or I'm just projecting the improvement as part of my admitted bias for FF.
2. Flash - Faster, less lag - This is much less subjective, though I don't have specific metrics. There are a couple of flash applications that I use almost daily, and many that I use regularly enough to be quite familiar with their performance. Some of them preformed noticeably poorer when using FF as opposed to IE. Because the performance issues increased the longer I used the apps in question without closing and re-launching the browser window, I assumed that there was some memory leak or other minor, but cumulative, flaw in the way FF was caching/handling the Flash/Browser interface.
Since release 2.0, these issues have disappeared. Am I th only one who's noticed the difference? I can't measure it, per se, but I know there's been an improvement on my end. It's incredibly easy to spot.
