How about SSE 4.1/4.2 or AVX optimizations ? biggrin.gif

Already experimented with those -
http://www.overclock.net/t/1172085/tweaking-firefox-for-sandy-bridge
The build there is out of date, need to get round to updating it. Only really did it as a test to see if AVX would actually make any difference to something as simple as a browser, in short it seems it really does. I have nowhere near the skills MrAlex has, so I would recommend you use Waterfox.

I highly doubt MrAlex will specify the build that much though, lets face it it is only a minority of people at the moment who have supported PCs. If he can find some way of making it work like his plan for SSE3 Intel build without sacrificing performance on unsupported systems, that would be great, I don't think you can do that though.

Do you have plans to release a linux version, MrAlex?

Interseting. My scores are
Fire 8.0.1: 209678
Fire 9.0.1: 189552
Water 9.0: 212191

This shows that Firefox 9 is slower than 8 despite it's claimed to be faster.
Waterfox however proved to be a slightly faster than Firefox 8

MY score on Waterfox 9.0 is 427253. Do you have hw accel enabled?

Why is it that when I directly execute the firefox.exe file, a Waterfox browser window opens instead of a Firefox window? They're not even in the same folder tree. What's up with that???

Unfortunately if I included that then no AMD users would be able to run Waterfox unless they have a Bulldozer CPU.

I do an am practicing compiling on linux. I've tried for years to get used to linux but I just don't seem to like it, but there definately is a plan for linux Waterfox.

Benchmark scores will differ system to system, depending on how powerful the system is. That's why you cannot compare your results to someone elses results for browser benchmarking.

Which version does it rely upon? I downloaded and installed the latest VCredist version, and nothing changed.

Yes the tests proved a slightly better performance with HW on. But only slightly.
The low index may be caused by alots of extensions active and that it's only 2 core PC with integrated GPU.
Now I run the benchmark at Peacekeeper and get yet more interesting result.

Overall index of Firefox 9.0.1 without HW acceleration given me 851.
Overall index of FF9 with HW acceleration given me 996.
And Waterfox 9.0 with HW acceleraion given me overall score 969 only confusedsmiley.png
Where Waterfox was faster: Rendering (23.50 / 20.90), HTML5 Capabilities and very slightly in Text Parsing (40636,68 / 40352,41).
Where Firefox was faster: HTML5 canvas (18.75 / 17.29), Data (12704,72 / 11229,62) and DOM operations (4871,61 / 4604,93).
