Here's a nice speed booster for all you FireFox fans (if you have high-speed interenet):

Type "about:config" into your address bar (click "I'll be Careful).

Find the settings below and change them:

- network.http.pipelining > TRUE
- network.http.pipelining.maxrequests > 100
- network.http.proxy.pipelining > TRUE

Then, right click anywhere, and select New > Integer.
- nglayout.initialpaintdelay > 0

Then go browsing some crazy pages like yahoo.com and msn.com and feel the power!

Basically, pipelining allows the browser to send multiple requests and receive information through multiple threads, while the initialpaintdelay forces the browser to wait 0ms before sending a request.

Awesome, cant wait to grab it. Hopefully their minefield (64 bit browser) is alot better this time around. I hope the download I did click from the main news posting is for 64 bit.

what are the benefits of 64bit in a "simple" web browser???
bigger cache than 4 GB in the main memory? :D :banghead:

So is it any good? Are there bugs? Does Adblock work? Have no problems with 2.0.0.14 so I'm not in a hurry to 'downgrade' :) Maybe I'll wait for OS re-install, have to install everything again, so might as well go newer.

I already downloaded it... twice. The final is basically RC3 (same hash, same everything)
Yes, same build (2008052906)... But I still downloaded it again, for the record ;)

bus wide with 64 bits read more bits than 32 bits... I think it's a little faster ;)

Theres an x64 version of Thunderbird too.

If you look at the last post i think it is on page one, I was saying how the only thing lacking in x64 browsers is flash support.
