received some "significant
performance improvements" over previous Android builds,
thanks to the addition of a high-performance Just In Time (JIT)
compiler for the Dalvik Virtual Machine. For a better understanding
of what a JIT does, there is no one better to explain than the tech
leader for the Dalvik team, Dan Bornstein.
JIT is a software component which takes application code, analyzes
it, and actively translates it into a form that runs faster, doing so

results show that the Android device delivers significantly faster
on V8 and almost twice as fast on SunSpider," Ars Technica writes.
This means that not only is Google
outpacing Safari in terms of desktop browsers, but its
mobile browsers deliver better
performance as well. Now we can only hope that Froyo rolls
out to other Android devices sooner rather than later.
