Discussion of third-party/unofficial Firefox/Thunderbird/SeaMonkey builds.
Wow, dude, thanks for a link! Finally a person who builds current trunk... I'm going to test it!

Very interesting. These builds are even configurable for AMD CPUs. Just made a 3Dnow!+ version for my trusty Athlon TBird ... i like it
Yeah, working fine on AMD, fast and smooth
Bluefyre is also building current trunk almost everyday.

Interesting...Firefox 1.5 G7 build working well thus far...
NetBSD 64-bit + Xfce
ArchLinux 64-bit + JWM
Exactly where do you place the DLLs?
OK, just in the main folder and not in any sub-folder?
That's where I put them ... I think they were already there and I just replaced them.
Well, I just installed it and it loads quicker (snaps open right away) than any build I"ve used up to this point. Is that because of the of Module Builder?

Although many complain... i can only confirm, what he said is right. Just copy the DLLs (conforming to your cpu) into the right folder and confirm overwrite and confirm the local settings after starting tbind.exe and you're done... really... believe me... it's great!!!
I suspect that the setup is so that the DLLs are preloaded when Windows starts up.
It appears that this builder is using custom CRT DLLs optimized for specific platforms which is pretty slick. I did this on some of my older builds using inline code but it resulted in maintenance issues so I dropped it. But the approach of doing it in DLLs is very, very nice.
I don't have time to try the build out right now (and they probably wouldn't run on my Mac anyways) but some BenchJS comparisons with the usual builders might be interesting on the 1.0.7 builds given that not everyone does trunk builds.

Sorry, I forgot to write - I'm interested in SSE/MMX G6 builds, but none of you unfortunetely builds it I think
