Comment 40 for bug 192888

I heartily agree with Conn's observations about nspluginwrapper (or something like it) having an x86 port. The thing I noticed immediately when I switched to nspluginwrapper (from a chroot jail where I ran x86 firefox) was that when I was watching a flash video which takes >90% cpu in one tab (e.g. msnbc), I could still navigate on the other tabs freely, because of the seperate process (it's a dual core machine).

So there are performance, as well as crash-protection, reasons to move in the "seperate process" direction. It's not really germane to this bug, but I wanted to put my 2 cents in, because I think it's a great idea.
