Linux: Swiftweasel (fastest build of Firefox ever seen)
« on: June 29, 2007, 10:31:35 AM »
Swiftweasel is an optimized build of Mozilla Firefox with build-in Adblock Plus.

It's faster than Firefox with network.http.pipelining set to TRUE and pipelining.maxrequests set to 10.

You don't have to install Swiftweasel and it works out of the box with all your plugins, you have installed for Firefox. Just unpack and run the program.

Builds for Firefox 3.0 Alpha are also available.

I've just tested the speed of Swiftweasel compared with Firefox with network.http.pipelining set to TRUE and pipelining.maxrequests set to 10.

Swiftweasel 2.0.0.4 with Adblock Plus loaded at once 12 of my favorite websites in 20 seconds, without Adblock Plus in 27 seconds and Firefox 2.0.0.4 loaded at once the same 12 website in 30 seconds. ;D
