I've never understood why people create forks of Firefox. Why not put the effort you spend into creating a brand new package into the official Firefox.

Correct, I'm on Firefox's side for once and I didn't even mention Opera, whoops!

Sorry, didn't get that: didn't Mozilla cease their x64 development?

Not all features and changes can make it to the official builds. Stuff like that needs testing and approval from Mozilla. The beauty of open source is that you can make your own fork with the features you want with no restraints.

Mozilla sorta resumed development of x64 nightly builds. From More info: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgr ... OihL2429NM

x64 nightly builds are available here:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/ ... a-central/

From what I can understand, they will continue to make x64 firefox nightlies but they won't provide support for anyone using them if they encounter any bugs.

Thanks for clarifying that, Userfriendly. :)

What are the system requirements? Like do you need only an Intel processor built after 2010?

  • There are some restraints, but I'd like to think of them as good restraints (the share-and-share alike requirements) rather than bad restraints (our software sucks but it's required to do X, you can't share it with anyone, you can't change or modify it to suit your needs or to fix something).

  • One reason you might want an optimized version of Firefox is if you're using it for a few specific operations and do it very, very fast. Such as a JavaScript computation or Web-only application.

  • One reason you might not want an optimized version of Firefox is that it may not work with all devices and sites. The very name "web browser" implies looking around, not just specific places or areas. Additionally, Mozilla would likely have no interest as it's in contrast to the very nature of the open tools and protocols that Firefox is trying to advocate.

Note: Haller will likely jump in here and make the point that the use of the word "fox" is a trademark issue. Although I don't disagree (I really don't know), please visit this topic we've covered before to avoid rehashing.
