Hi Con,

I use the infinitely superior (to XMMS), interactive testing tool
mplayer! :-)

My test consists of playing a video in mplayer with software scaling,
(ie. no xv) and refreshing various fat web pages. This as you are fully
aware would cause mozilla to gobble up CPU in short bursts of
approximately .5 - 3 seconds during which time the video would be very

06int is much improved in this scenario, the pauses during refreshing
web pages have almost disappeared. There are still very small hiccups in
the video playback during the refreshes.

Also, I use a local web page that queries a local mysql db to display a
large table in mozilla. So, mozilla, apache and mysql are all local.
06int is a huge improvement in this area as well. It is decreases the
choppiness of the video greatly. Previously this would cause almost a
complete halt of the video for several seconds and now I would say there
is only a small amount choppiness. It is still pretty choppy on the
initial load of that page after a reboot, maybe nothing is cached yet?

Thanks for your hard work!
