Has anyone read up on this? A friend showed me this and I didn't want to try it....yet. But was wondering if there would be THAT much of a difference. Though really it's fast enough on here for me.<br><br>http://arstechnica.com/reviews/os/macosx-10.4.ars/14<br><br>Apparently Quartz 2D Extreme is turned off by default and you need the Dev Tools to turn it on. I guess it's not ready yet...according to the article.<br><br>
I just enabled it and played around a bit. I think it's faster, but I can't really pin anything down. Try scrolling long pages in Safari with lots of graphics - it feels a bit more peppy there. Dashboard "zooping" seems a bit smoother too - I think.<br><br><br>
