Does anyone use Swiftfox?





Arty
I just downloaded swiftfox, installed it and added the fasterfox plugin. (as I was advised to)
I'm not 100% sure what SwiftFox is, but apparently it kept all of firefox's features. I have the same bookmarks, same everything, it's just like firefox, except it says "Swiftfox" on the title bar.

One thing I've noticed though is that it takes a lot less memory that Firefox does, and it doesn't lag as much, but I don't know if this is true or of I'm just imagining it.

Does anyone else use Swiftfox and noticed that it is A LOT faster than firefox?

On the Swiftfox site http://getswiftfox.com/ it says:


Swiftfox is an optimized build of Mozilla Firefox. Swiftfox has builds for both AMD and Intel processors and is based on the most cutting edge Firefox source code available.


It goes on to say that it uses existing Firefox plugins.

The title tickle me to look into this topic, and I am also out of Frih points.

Thanks and this does sound like something worth exploring - I am a fan of firefox, but if swiftfox is a better version of firefox, why is it not widely spread by Mozilla?

Hope to really find more speed out of this.

Thanks.

The earlier message assume everyone is on Linux.

Swiftfox is for Linux users only.

Thanks anyway.

Doesn't sound that interesting to me - when I want a noticeable faster browser, I'll use one with a native GUI, like Safari or Camino on Mac, Epiphany on GNOME or Konqueror on KDE. I doubt that the optimization for certain processors will make a big difference in day-to-day usage.

If it just like Firefox i rather use the original creators version. I am also a loyal Firefox user. I have tried other browsers, however, Firefox is the only browser I seem to enjoy using. Thanks for sharing this though. Smile
