I was having a look at the latest downloads on Techspot earlier and found these two.

Has anyone used Firetune 1.1.4 to tune up their Firefox v2, what exactly does it do, and would you recommend it?.

At the same time I saw there was a download available for Mozilla Firefox (Gran Paradiso) 3.0 Alpha 2. Has anyone installed this yet and is it working ok or should I stick with v2 for the moment and wait for the final version.
Thanks in advance for any input,
bluesjunior.

Haven't used Firetune myself, looking over Mozillazine it seems to have mixed reactions.

You can use 3.0 if you like, but keep in mind it's in early pre-release stage (Alpha) so it's bound to have bugs and unaddressed issues. If you feel adventurous and you want to test drive alpha software, go for it. If you want a stable browser stick with 2.0

For speeding up Firefox, you can try Pipelining

If you don't have all of the entries shown, don't worry about it.
Just change the settings you have available.

I installed it on my computer awhile back to see & none of my add ons worked with it & it was prone to crashing. Tried it on a second pc as well with fewer problems, but I decided to wait for the final. If you have a second pc, try it & see what you think.
