David Holden wrote>"Whether or not it's sensible to run a browser from within an emulator when that same browser run on the host OS might well be faster/better is another qustion altogether."

What do you mean "might well be faster/better"? It either is or isn't faster. I can't see how, logically, you can arrive at the conclusion that given the same application compiled (into ARM code) that such ARM code can run on an emulator on an x86 *faster* than native x86 code version of the same application.

As to whether it's better or not if the two applications are the same application (Firefox in this instance) it would make diddly squat difference as to if you use ARM under Emulation or x86 one.

A bit of a pointless exercize IMHO.
