I forgot where the new FasterFox plug-in for Firefox 3.*

The old FasterFox for FF 1.5-2.0 is still on the Mozilla site, but I'm having trouble finding the new one for FF 3.*

I tried the developer webpage with no luck.

Thanks to whoever knows.

FasterFox offers prefetching... This means the data is cached BEFORE I even visit the page.

It's a plug-in that web hosts probably don't like. It basically "cheats" and makes your browsing experience faster by doing things such as prefetching files so that they are instantaneously available.

Before FF3 I used fasterfox all the time and it never did anything that I did not want it to do (And I used PHPMyAdmin with it).

At best, FasterFox is a placebo. I used to use it back in the day of FF2.0, before I realized that the vast majority of its settings can be accessed through about:config. So really it's just a shiny GUI for tweaks you could have done yourself.
