Camino + TFF TJ Engine = Historic PowerPC Advance!

    Interesting, but highly unlikely. Camino is going to drop Gecko as fas as I know, so it won't benefit from further PPC jit development. And even though Camino is a fine browser with its own philosophy, TFF is even more unlikely to adopt the Camino frontend (lacking add-ons and other features). Sorry.

    Chris is right. Camino can't utilize Mozilla 2.x and higher because they don't support embedding, which is why Camino is moving away from Gecko in the first place. Secondly, the JIT in Camino is an older version of the tracejit, which Mozilla doesn't support anymore, and our old tracejit will need modification for LIRops the 3.6 JS engine can generate that were removed in the update to Firefox 4. You can certainly take a whack at this yourself, but it will never be as fast as JM+TI will be because it doesn't support the optimizations available in later versions of JavaScript. It's not something I plan to work on, however.
