Firefox Minefield browser to blow you out with speed

Mozilla has come out with what may be the future of firefox, the speed is quite fast and is visible. It’s a pre-release/alpha version of the Firefox browser. If you would spend some time with Minefield it is clear firefox is comming out with a faster and better browser.

Of course the question that pop’s up on everyone mind is how fast is it? I read claims that it is Most Fastest Browser in the World ever. So I decided to try it, Yes! it was quite fast.

You can get more information about the browser from Mozilla Page. You can also download the latest version from ftp of latest-trunk. Well if you have the time and the guts to try out a browser which is in ” NOT A FINAL OR PRE-RELEASE VERSION” yes this cup of tea is for you.

Minefield a separate install, your existing Firefox stays alive.

If you have a mac PC, Set your default browser as MineField, you will notice something. How many web browsers do you have on your system.

To Do:

  1. Download and install the latest nightly build.
  2. Start tracemonkey javascript engine by going to about:config and enabling the option javascript.options.jit.content.
  3. Browse websites blazingly fast

    How come no mozilla site has reference to this futuristic product which they seem to have developed themselves. Even a google on the site returns empty handed

    Thank you Pushpinder. I wanted to have an unique template for the blog so we designed this template. Gusel Magazine template is excellent. Planning to use that template style for new ventures

    rizzy, Mozilla will be coming out with a next version of Firefox, they have code named it as Minefield, this is under development its not released. How ever Mozilla gives us a chance to use the browser, you can download it as given in the blog
