TraceMonkey what the h!#k is that all about?13 Dec 2008
Now I know this is all a bit ‘techie’ (or nerdy as I am often told), but TraceMonkey is going to have a major influence on all OpenCRM users and I thought I might just take a few minutes and comment on what it is, why its going to be so interesting and how you can actually get it! It is going to be available through the latest releases of the Firefox web browser.
TraceMonkey was released to the Firefox developer community on Friday (that’s the 12th December 2008 if your watching this rerun on Dave 🙂
First of all – What is TraceMonkey?
How do you get it?
The best way is to wait for the production release, V3.1, of the Firefox browser, which is due just before or after Christmas. This will deliver a stable and easy way for users to implement this new feature in a robust way.
So which browser should I choose? We have always said that our preference is Firefox, based on the Open Source nature of the code and other security benefits, but now there is a real performance reason for changing (if you don’t already use FF) or upgrading if you are a FF user already.
Before I got my start in the tech industry as part of Apple’s UK Mac launch team, I was a professional drummer (notice I didn’t say musician). But once I got in, I was hooked and I’ve been involved in the tech industry, primarily software development, for over 35 years. I founded this company and I now have the enviable title of System Architect (as well as Managing Director) here at OpenCRM.
