Custom Compiled Mozilla Apps

By Deane Barker on March 27, 2005

MOOX :: Welcome to my Werxshop…: This guy custom compiles Mozilla apps for various platforms. If I’m reading his analysis (PDF) correctly, he’s claiming 10-20% rendering speed increases for various Intel processors.

I am currently releasing four versions, or “M” builds — M0, M1, M2, and M3, of the Firefox browser, Thunderbird email client, and the Mozilla Suite. Each M version is designed to exploit features of particular processors and/or instruction sets and is thus limited in its compatibility with other processors.
