Yeah, it's quite a fun thing to do. But note it takes a long time to compile tongue.gif

I've been running Waterfox for about 2 weeks now, and can't say I notice any change in performance over Firefox. Not to say that a difference doesn't exist.

However, the amount of memory it uses over Firefox is inexcusable.

Firefox with 1 tab = 122,340K
Waterfox with same 1 tab = 143,976K
Firefox with 5 tabs = 189,840K
Waterfox with same 5 tabs = 262,404K

Of course, the difference changes depending on what web pages, and other factors. But it remains that Waterfox uses much more memory than Firefox.

And also, of course, they both use much less memory than chrome. ~100,000K less on average when using multiple tabs.

The increase in RAM usage equals to an increase in browser performance. So it is excusable tongue.gif if you depend on your RAM and it is critical that it is used by another application then switch to Chrome or the likes.

Least I know the ram I paid for is being used up rather sitting doing nothing.

Well, when using that much more memory, and not having a noticeable performance increase, I'd rather save the extra memory for other things like photoshop and video games...

Then again, when I upgrade to 8 gigs of ram from 4 gigs, I see no problem using waterfox again.

I should probably thank you as I've been using Waterfox for at least a month and it is the best browser I've ever used. Flawless (aside from one or two annoying little flash bugs but that irrelevant to this.)

about to download 4.1

Unfortunately, it didn't work.
But that's not just a Waterfox thing.
I have been trying to install Firefox 4 on my parents computer, but it instantly crashes upon opening.
Same happens with your program. I thought Waterfox would fix it, but I guess not.

I would love to try it out, but I'm using Linux. frown.gif
