I've been having trouble with firefox lag....so i downloaded the swiftfox install file. The only problem is, im completely clueless as how to install it. I have to open a terminal, the only problem is, I don't know what that is and how to open it. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you using Linux? This application is for Linux users.

The following is taken from this site.


Instructions

1. Download the installer to your home directory
2. Open a terminal window
3. Run the installer by typing the following:
sh install-swiftfox.sh
4. Launch Swiftfox by selecting it from the menu

If you google swiftfox you will see this statement, "Swiftfox is an optimized build of Mozilla Firefox for Linux".

Like dc3 said, it won't work with Windows.
Go to Firefoxe's add-ons and see if DCOM is listed. If it is, remove it and reboot

Speaking of Fasterfox, I am getting mixed messages. Some people out there are saying that it "abuses the internet." I guess it makes their hosting servers work harder. Can anyone enlighten me before I give this program a whirl?
