Is there any difference in performance between tcmalloc on vs off?

I understand your reasoning. A lot of people would like an installer I guess. But it isn't a high end product... mr.Alex does what he can and if he can make an installer for it, great ! But please don't compare a single user's efforts with an open-source project supported by Mozilla.

So by your reasoning, wouldn't it be worth a shot to ask the developers of the installer or change the installer?

Easier just to make a custom installer for Waterfox. Probably something like Inno Setup would be nice to use.

My point exactly. Even though that may be a problem with updates and familiarity. First step would be to look into the problem with the developer of the installer.

if you're going to use a new installer, please make sure we can perform silent installation (via silent switches).

PS?

"--disable-activex --disable-activex-scripting"

Nice security patch there. I always did dislike the whole "ActiveX" idea in MSIE. thumb.gif

something isn't playing well with waterfox 12. im getting a lot of "stuck" connections. i have 140 tabs (yes, i have 16gb ram) and that used to play fine with waterfox 10.. and now a jump to waterfox 11.

so i'd do a google search via search bar top right and it'd say transferring data from google.com... and it no longer moves. opening google.com manually = same thing.
i need to restart waterfox to get things back to normal.

could be one of my addons but i doubt it. same addons that i used in waterfox 11 and are up to date.

Do I have to have Sun Java plug-in running for me to experience 100% of the 64-bit browser? If I don't need it, I want to disable it until I need it for a program or something to that extent.

hi, sorry, i'm unexperienced.

i've just installed waterfox 12. but i see this "tcmalloc", and the "bin" file to download.

does this "bin" file has "tcmalloc" included?? how do i run/plac the "bin" folder so that it replaces my waterfox installation?

thx! love this browser.thumb.gif

The installer doesn't have it. Get either, they do the same thing, but tcmalloc version should be faster.

Here are my results for Waterfox 12 (Installer). Link.

Adblock Plus + Flash + Tweaks

Score: 4866 on Google v8

tcmalloc version

Score: 4863 on Google v8

Here is the link for Dromaeo. Link.

Both do the same for me. No real difference between them.
