this is a documentation issue.

i spent 30 minutes figuring out why changing jQuery.fx.interval to smaller values had no intended smoothing effect in my FF nightly.

problem turned out to be jQuery.fx.interval has no effect in browsers supporting requestAnimationFrame

http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/9384 mentions this, but it should be noted in the official API documentation for the jQ version where this change was made. 1.4.3 works, 1.6 does not. does 1.5?

Docs updated: http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.fx.interval/. We should however consider expanding the text at some point based on http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/9384 and whether we intend on making a change in 1.7+ or not. At the moment based on votes it appears that this probably won't be tackled for a while, which may have more to do with the uncertainty about the size of the implementation.
