good news, we have a lot of wins, bad news a couple regressions.  What is interesting is the tabpaint win8 regression is non-e10s, but the win8 e10s tabpaint had a nice win.

:smaug, is there anything concerning here- reading the original bug, it looks like there were a few concerns about perf.  If we like the wins we get vs the small regressions, that seems reasonable- just making sure there is nothing simple to do in order to reduce or remove the regressions would be nice to know.

It is very much expected that timings change, when we start to run refresh driver at different time
(usually earlier than before). There is no way to keep numbers unchanged.

And if non-e10s regress and e10s improves, that is the way to go.
