we're getting fast

Firefox's JavaScript engine, Spidermonkey (including the Tracemonkey and Jaegermonkey JITs) is now faster than Webkit's JSCore on both Sunspider and V8. Great work, team!

update: also, on the Sunspider benchmark, we're only about 1/100th of a second behind Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine (about 3.5%). Oh, and there's Kraken, where we're still solidly in the lead.
