Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 163

What's new in Waterfox 10?

  • Implementation of SSE3 for all base processors.
  • Implementation of SSSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX and AVX2 for processor that support it.
  • So far in preliminary benchmarks a performance increase of up to 20%.

OMG YES

Is SSE4a (i.e. Phenom II rev of SSE4) on the horizon at all though?

MrAlex - I'm guessing you got the issues you were having resolved with the help of chm44 with the exception of the auto update.


Well I managed to figure it out myself, but chm44 definitely helped and the links provided were useful. I kept on getting errors on bsdiff.c. Bsdiff stands for Binary Difference, i.e. to do with updates. So I had to disable auto-updates and voila it compiled :).

Unfortunately no, not unless Intel decide to add support for it in their compiler. The good news is the new version of the Intel compiler doesn't generate code that doesn't provide performance benefits to AMD processors unless specifically implied. biggrin.gif

Hi, MrAlex. Good to hear that you got everything sorted. Is there any chance that you share a build before you release to test it? So you still used the Intel compiler for v10? If yes, is it possible that you provide an MSVC 2010 build too, which is know to work fine? Unfortunately the Intel compiler even if it's faster, it's still very buggy in a lot of cases, while MSVC 2010 is way more stable.

Thanks in advance.

I have access to an AMD system to test as well. So I'll run tests and benchmarks to see how it runs, but from the look of things it's just as stable and I haven't noticed any bugs. If necessary I'll make a MSVC build but for now I won't, because I don't have the time to. Even my current rig takes a while to compile Firefox.

I don't really care about AMD, I mostly care about regressions due to the Intel compiler. Like I said, it's very buggy especially with high optimization levels. That's why I ask for an MSVC 2010 build too, cause we know it produces stable code.

Hey all ...

I paged through a couple random pages here ... honestly I didn't read all 163 pages ... redface.gif ... ... but I was just curious ... is this mostly bug free ?? ... how is it running ... I am very interested and would like to know if it is stable or as stable as possible ... lol

I've used -O2, -fp:precise, -Qax, -arch, -Qparallel and -Qprec-div. I didn't use -O3 because it tends to cause the most instability. I'll test it, have some of my friends test it locally and then maybe an hour before release on the website I'll put it here so you can test it.

Download it, and before you launch it the first time, change the profile Waterfox uses by following these instructions:

http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Managing-profile

Test and see if you like, and if it works you can make Waterfox use your Firefox profile, if you use Firefox that is. If you uninstall Waterfox make sure you DON'T tick the remove personal data so you don't remove your old Firefox profile!

Brilliant ... I will do that ... and yes ... I have been a loyal Firefox user for ages ... hehe ... I convert the ppl around me as well ... guess I will now convert them into waterfox uses ... hehe
