Nearly forgot to launch the install - this is certainly much much faster! Even adapted to my Firefox profile upon first startup which is great, so I can revert to regular firefox in case of issues. I'm definitely liking it so far
I'm going to put a link to Waterfox in my "Optimizing Firefox" article (see sig)

does not install on xp x64
It was compiled with VC2010 and requires some features that XP doesn't support. This build isn't for legacy hardware/software
sorry about that.

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
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
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
. But I've noticed that the extra RAM usage helps. I got it from Deviantart actually

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).
