Java performance tips
Modern 1GHz PC generates for several seconds amazing Mandelbrot fractals.
Due to "just-in-time" compilation tiny applets (in the old Netscape_4.08)
are only 1/4 slower then C++ programs. But InternetExplorer_6 (with MS or
Sun JVM) is frequently 2-3 times slower and P4 usually draws fractals 2
times slower then Pentium-M or AMD chips.
