I wonder if the plugin container was purposely disabled in this build... I don't see that exe running.
Also, quite the RAM heavy.... 280MB on 2 tabs tongue.gif I don't really mind though with 8GB. Might be that plugin container lack though. EDIT: Must've been something else, now it's down to 179MB.

I also realize... you got the blue firefox icon from Speedyfox, didn't you? I rather like it

Is this carried over from Minefield?

I think he recompiled it himself from the source codes.
Peacekeeper actually doesn't give me that much better results (probably I'm highly optimized enough?) but I do get somewhat noticeably faster startup times on Waterfox vs. Firefox - and the web browsing to me (not Peacekeeper) seems a tad bit faster. Perhaps it's due to GPU acceleration being enabled that the results aren't much better if at all (since I think that's an entirely different API).

I'm going to put a link to Waterfox in my "Optimizing Firefox" article (see sig)

Thanks biggrin.gif

It was compiled with VC2010 and requires some features that XP doesn't support. This build isn't for legacy hardware/software tongue.gif sorry about that.

Strange...plugin container is running as a separate exe for me and Firefox takes up a specific % of your RAM. Can't remember what it was biggrin.gif. But I've noticed that the extra RAM usage helps. I got it from Deviantart actually tongue.gif

If you're running the same/similar builds on Peacekeeper, the hardware is what then affects the score. It's JavaScript execution times etc that should be reduced (albeit not much since you have a beastly rig).

When I started it up today plugin manager opened with it this time
Still uses more RAM but that is something I can live with, I rock 8GB smile.gif I know that Firefox is RAM-adaptive like Windows 7, it just seems that Waterfox uses somewhat more RAM than Firefox did.

There are more advantages than the ability to use more RAM:

  • Memory addressability
  • Better parallel processing
  • Faster bus architecture
  • More Secure
  • Better scalability

Weird occure, the waterfox don't react to mouse or keyboard function. Closing followed by opening again. Writting on website instead of English it is Russian language keyboard... followed by another freezing effect. Waterfox popping in plugin-in not working...
