Despite the fact that Firefox 8 has appeared on the Nightly channel just days ago, Mozilla reports that it is already 20% faster than Firefox 5 in pretty much all the tests, including:
3D WebGL rendering
Furthermore, thanks to the reduced memory footprint in Firefox 7 and above, Firefox 8 will use much less RAM than its predecessors.
According to reports, Firefox 8 was tested against the Dev Channel build of Google Chrome 14 and beat in all but WebGL implementation tests, at least for now.
Although there is no exact ETA, some expect to see the release of Firefox 8 Beta by the end of this year.
Update: Firefox 8 is set for November 8th release.
