Did Firefox's rendering engine change between versions 4/5 and version 6?

When I go to a highly graphical site like http://valentino.com/ with Firefox 6, it seems that the initial access takes a lot longer than it used to, and then the whole site is all on screen at once. The same site in Chrome 13 loads like I am used to: fast initial access, with the elements appearing as they are loaded.

Basically, I'm wondering why the Internet seems slower than it did a few days ago.

I'm using Firefox 6.0.1 on a white Macbook that runs OS X Snow Leopard.

I don't think they changed it. I think they have upgraded it. Firefox 6 is using Gecko 6.0.

Refer the following links for all the changes.
