[quote]You aren't alone on doing the shuffle - at least among OSX users! Firefox is great because of the extensions, but FF2 is just bloatware on OSX and it is dog slow.[/quote] Most definitely. I've been using FireFox and the Mozilla suite for years and years now. When I got my MacBook, I was quite chagrined to find just how ridiculously slow and bloated it was. Then a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon an Optimized Build of 2.0.0.8 for OS X that works great. I haven't run any benchmarks on it or anything, but the painful waits as firefox would chug and chug along are basically gone. Before I found this, I found Firefox to be damn near unusable on OS X, and I was running it on a 2GHz Core 2 Duo with 2GB of RAM.
