Performance

Scrolling through a long page can be smoother on the Gingerbread stock browser than on Firefox. It appears Firefox re-sizes and re-formats text in a page on-the-fly. This is probably why fast-scrolling through a long page can stutter slightly on phones with underpowered processors. Fortunately, we didn’t find this to be too distracting to the browsing experience on the phone we tested Firefox on, which ran a 1GHz single-core CPU.
