Well, Tinic sort of beat me to the punch with his post last week on Garbage Collection in Flash Player 8. Which is actually great, because he gives an engineer’s perspective on one of the big reasons why performance is better in Flash Player 8, whereas I took a more high-level approach. Definitely read both for the full effect. Plus, there are sample tests and results available in the article that you can check out.
