News and articles from around the web

Jan Hubička wrote up a comparison of Firefox 64 built with GCC and Clang with LTO. As always with Jan's posts, it's a great read. One notable difference is that Clang-produced binaries are substantially larger (48% larger code section) because Clang does little to size-optimize cold regions. Also see the Hacker News thread for more discussion.
