FireTune Your Browser

Last Updated Jul 30, 2008 6:01 PM EDT

firetune.jpgAs we know from last month's poll, most of you guys tip Firefox as your browser of choice. You like it because of its openness, customizability and security features, and because it's less prone to bugs and crashes. Now there's a way to get even more performance out of the browser.

Download FireTune 1.2, which is a tiny utility that optimizes Firefox 3 performance based on your computer and internet speed. Web Worker Daily claims that most of this performance boost comes from a souped-up caching system. Whatever it does, it seems to do it well, as my browsing sessions post FireTune seem to be smoother and faster.
