Faster Browsing?

Something I stumbled upon while looking for something else:

Swiftfox is a rebuild of the Firefox source code, using optimizations appropriate for Linux and your AMD or Intel processor. There is a version, which I installed in the same way I installed Firefox, except that the directories are now named swiftfox instead of firefox.

Is it really faster? I'm not sure, but it certainly seems faster. And so far all extensions work. I'll play with it a while and see how it goes.

Interesting, Swiftfox is linked to the Central New York SPCA, and if you like the code you are requested to send a donation to CNYSPCA.
