OSD performance

Our latest bit of homework for OSD was for the Firefox javascript engine. Here's what we did:

- Download Minefield(Firefox nightly build)
- Download Chromium(Chrome nightly build)

Got that? Good! Now check out this. These Google experiments are done with functionalities in HTML5.

As a class we divided and conquered all the experiments, taking approximately ten each. That however didn't stop me from wasting far too much time in the other cool experiments. The goal was to identify any problems in Firefox's: speed, responsiveness, and smoothness. Also along the way report any bugs encountered (unfortunately I didn't find any) and finally record our results. Fridays class should show us where were taking this lab.
