Asa Dotzler, Mozilla's director of community development, has come out gunning for Microsoft, because the company failed to make public its JavaScript benchmarks in the same manner as open source projects, mentioning Apple's SunSpider, Google's V8 Benchmark, and Mozilla's Dromaeo.

“The open source engines are rockin' the speed game and the closed engines are falling very far behind very quickly. It looks to me like the closed and proprietary guys just can't keep up. It's actually a shame that they're falling so far behind. It would be helpful for the Web if the IE team was able to make some serious JS improvements for 8 and whatever comes next because there are still a significant number of users stuck on Microsoft's technology,” Dotzler stated.
