The final version of Firefox 3 has been released this week and, as anticipated in previous tests done on beta versions, Lightstreamer has proved to take full advantage of the increased performance on this browser.
In this video I will show the seamless behavior of the "engine migration mechanism". Then, I will increase the number of tabs concurrently displaying real-time data. I will stop at 10 tabs, due to the CPU consumption of the screen recording software. But under normal conditions, I opened 70 tabs without saturating the client CPU!
The URL used for this test is http://app.lightstreamer.com/StockListDemo/?wide=ON
This sets a maximum shared bandwidth of 200 kbit/sec for each client (multiplexing the individual updates destined to all the tabs).
