A replacement for Firefox.... Swiftfox

I think that Firefox should be replaced with Swiftfox (an optimized, proprietary version of Firefox). Link: http://www.getswiftfox.com
For me it is faster than FF.

For people that might bitch about it being closed source theres an Open Source counterpart of SF. It is called SwiftWeasel.

They are optimized in the same way, but with SW it has Pango render Unicode Fonts better. So Unicode looks better under SW rather than SF.

I prefer Firefox... and with Portage, you can recompile FF to be optimized just like Swiftfox. Switfox is kinda pointless on a source-based distro like Sabayon.

Yeah but some people are technologically inadept so they are not gonna know how to recompile FF like that and are not gonna wanna learn. Good thing I am one of the technologically adept people.
