CHUD/Shark for performance tuning?

How are you guys deciding how to tweak these PPC builds? I was reading about CHUD and Shark and it looked like a good way to profile the code to see where it's spending the most time. I was curious, so I installed CHUD 4.6.2 but when I try to use Shark I get an error:

CHUD trace facility currently owned by another process: "PID #-1" (PID -1). [CHUDDataSource]

Anyway, I appreciate all the effort you guys are putting into this project for us all!

    I can't speak for Tobias, but I do use Shark. I haven't gotten an error like that before, though.

    However, we also pay a lot of attention to various benchmarks, not necessarily because of their validity (some are, some are less so), but because they are widely reported and the most common way people will assess the browser's performance.
