10.6: Recompile AppleScript apps for a speed boost
Authored by: D-Man on Sep 16, '09 10:42:15AM

I agree with the previous posters that the speed up is from running natively rather than by way of Rosetta. I also found while running 10.5.x, if a script application is saved from Script Editor as an Application Bundle, it will be saved as a Universal and run considerably faster than it would if it had been saved as an Application.

Note: the option to save a file as an Application Bundle was renamed to Application in 10.6 meaning that in 10.6, Applications are saved by default as Application Bundles.
