Compared to other programs on my iMac DV 400Mhz, clicking on the top-right button to show/hide the toolbar is very slow, almost 1 second and the animation is very jerky, a pause at half of the move. Others programs are doing it smoothly. Build 20020621 16:08
This seems to be related to how big a page you have loaded. For example, if the browser is on about:blank, the change is just as smooth as in the Finder, and on simple pages like Google it is still quite good, but on this page it is quite jerky. This could just be a Quartz performance issue. I'll try testing this in 10.2 sometime and see if performance is good there.
The toolbar animation isn't hardware accelerated, so it makes little difference. I did notice that we're about the only browser that even tries to show this animation. Omni and Moz just snap to not having the toolbar on, and obviously IE isn't cocoa so it just does that silly right-to-left push thing. This might not be something we can do anything about. From a performance standpoint, it still only takes about a quarter second to hide the toolbar, but it's running at some painful speed around 10fps, which contrasts sharply with the Quartz Extreme animations like minimize and open disk that are all well above 30fps. If this is slowing some people down, we might just want to take the animation out like the other browsers.
FWIW, the hide/show animation is much smoother under 10.2 on my end, regardless of how complex the page that's being viewed is. There's no delay before hiding/showing, and the animation doesn't skip frames.
The close action looks fine to me on a build from 2002112321. Its smooth and doesn't appear to be much slower than Main.app's main drawer. This bug is really old and it wouldn't surprise me at all if this issue got resolved by other work in the past 4 months... I think it should be marked as resolved.
Forgot to note in comment #4 that I'm running Mac OS X 10.2.2 on a PowerBook G4/667.
Works better in 10.2, let's close it.
