Swiftfox

Swiftfox is identical to the official Firefox, except that the binaries are optimized for various AMD and Intel CPUs. You could complie w/ GCC optimizations yourself, or you can just do it the easy way. I installed it myself through Automatix on Ubuntu.

It will use all your old Firefox settings, so you won't even notice a change. There are a couple of minor bugs however that I've noticed related to rendering.

I have 64 bit gusty on here and it's pretty cool. The only issues I had were that flash didn't work until I uninstalled the flash player package, manually deleted the libflashplayer file from ~/.mozilla/plugins, and reinstalled it. Now, all I need to do is fix my problem with Enigmail...
