For this time since no one doing this (G6/SSE) i guess you might want to try O2/GAL6 non SSE build either djeter or JTw ones. :).... or just wait till tomorrow becuz according to one of this builder they might build the O2/GAL6/SSE since fews ppl asking it. :wink:

JTw still cannot build static ones...he doing dynamic build but still faster imo...(i've tried his Mozilla and Fx builds):wink: he will doing SeaMonkey build for O2/GAL6/SSE soon.

djeter doing the static builds...but so far only doing O2/GAL7/SSE2 and O2/GAL6 none SSE ones.

I'd also like to see SSE (not SSE2) optimized Mozilla builds. I could build them, but only Linux builds...
What will happen next? You never know.

Static builds with GL are faster because the whole program is optimized. When doing a shared build, you have a whole bunch of little pieces that can be optimized between themselves but not against all of the other routines that call them. With GL, the linker considers optimzations between all callers and callees in the executable.

The downside of this is that the build takes considerably longer and that a lot more virtual memory is needed to hold all of the symbols for comparison at the same time.
