 I noticed that too on my Mac versions.  For the above integrals:

 Mma 2.2: 4.7667 Seconds

 Mma 3.0: 22.416 Seconds

 For Simplify[], I have observed ratios of up to 20:1.  All operations
 I have timed so far are slower.  Perhaps the Mac kernel has not been
 properly optimized.  Mma 3.0 on a NT HP 200MHz Pentium seems noticeably
 faster although the front-end is buggier.

 What machine and OS were used in those tests?
