Nope, nighty builds are not optimized for x64. Also, the "official" update isn't going to be auto updated / added to Mozilla's download on the official site until the 20th.
So wait, if the nightly build isn't a 64-bit version, then what makes it unique compared to the regular version? And regarding my second question, I was referring to the download link the OP had; that's the official thing I would be downloading, right?

Firefox 9 features the release of Type Inference, or TI, a research project under way for over a year. TI is a feature in the SpiderMonkey Javascript engine which generates type information about Javascript programs through a combination of analyzing the program’s code and monitoring the types of values as the program executes. This type information is used during JIT compilation to generate more efficient code; Firefox 9 includes modifications to the JaegerMonkey JIT compiler to use inferred type information. This compilation mode, which is the default in Firefox 9, speeds up major benchmarks like Kraken and V8 by over 30%, and gives a large speed boost to many JS heavy websites. (source)

"Over 30%" is a lot of performance. Jaegermonkey could already beat V8 in a lot of JS benchmarks, I wonder what this does. Has anyone done a comparison?

A nightly build has a new build every night, that's why it's called a nightly. It's basically an alpha. Once they find a stable enough build, they put out a beta, which then goes to an official release.

Does it bug you that they efficiently update their browser for us?

I have no gripe with the release schedule, I'm just genuinely curious: does the IE development team still send cakes (whatever size) to Mozilla, or have they switched to, for example, cookies? biggrin.gif

Nightly is on its own schedule as it is technically a beta.

If they keep on a 6-week release cycle, then obviously they'll overcome Final Fantasy within 2012. That said, I'm betting that at some point they'll scrap the version numbers altogether and it will just be "Mozilla Firefox" and no one will care about the version number, just like for Chrome.
