Mach-o Mozilla is pretty impressive... (compared to Carbon)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just downloaded an experimental Mach-o (UNIX back end, rather than Carbonized MacOS) version of Mozilla, and it's pretty nice. Faster than the Carbon versions by far, and keep in mind that this is an experimental build, while the Carbon version has been tweaked for months.

In particular, it loads very quickly (faster than IE) and feels very snappy.

I agree, but that build has been out since 11/21 I believe. They are supposed to be churning out new daily builds according to the fizzilla page. Anyway, it shows a lot of promise. Now if only they would use OSX ui features!
