Windows 7: Minefield


26 Apr 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 
Minefield

I have been trying out Minefield which is basically Firefox 3.6a1pre, it is running extremely well and seems super quick.

It also works perfectly with the new window preview on the new taskbar.

Has anyone else tried it? You can grab it from:
Index of /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk

It's not working with all my add-ons but I'm sure it won't be long.

How much resources is it using up? 1, 2, 3, 4 tabs open?

I have tried minefield on and off and its pretty good.

You might like to know that there is actually a native 64-bit version which you can download from: http://wiki.mozilla-x86-64.com/Firefoxownload

It's not bad at all, with five sessions open, each with a couple of tabs, it's ranging from around 60-80meg of RAM and jumping from 01-02 processor usage.

I loaded microsoft.com, apple.com, this site.com, mi6.co.uk, and gateworld.net just to be sure.

My main machine isn't actually x64 capable, but I'll deffo try it on my other two machines.

Just need the add-ons to catch up. I have to have Glasser!

I have the 32bit Minefield, and I run Shiretoko 3.5beta4pre nightly releases as my default Fx (and keep 3.1b3 handy for emergencies).

Other than some addon issues, it works well, but I still use Shiretoko are my default b/c I have always used it....
