For even less confusion I could send you the Firefox icon and then you could just edit the shortcut and point to the original icon.

Any plans to compile from Aurora branch (currently 6.0) ? That would be even nicer.
Well when Firefox 6 enters Beta

One request please, could you update the icon and make it more blended? It's pretty jagged looking.
I know, I've tried so many different ways but the icon just keeps on looking jagged! It's the EXACT same size as the icon it's replacing as well. I'll have to try something else.

Peacekeeper test

Waterfox result highlighted in orange.



Tested on Core 2 Quad 3.0GHz, 4GB RAM with about 40 addons installed.

All results shown were tested by me at various times.

Previous non Waterfox 5.0 Beta build I was using scored 5398

I tend to disregard peacekeeper benchmarks, since it heavily relies on hardware http://browsermark.rightware.com/bro...k/index.action does a better job of being a benchmark even though it's for mobile phones, it still gives the most consistent results.

Yeah, I found that out benching another machine, but since nothing has changed on my machine I thought it would be interesting comparing the different versions. Since hardware does differ a lot and software can be tailored to some hardware more than others I think peacekeeper certainly has a place in identifying browser performance.

I know, I could extract it from the default firefox.exe myself. I think this wouldn't matter too much.

I stand corrected. It doesn't work for me either. I had a different browser open Hulu. Not a show stopper for me.

Firefox 5 beta 6 is out. But, beta 7 is already built after a few last minute fixes and may be released officially at any time. It also might be the last beta before the final.

Beta 6 looks like it apparently has even more performance improvements... I'm hoping it translates into even better startup time?
