Mozila are fighting back at the threat of Google's super fast Chrome browser with a new and even faster browser of their own.

Minefield (http://www.mozilla.org/projects/minefield/)

Still in early alpha so expect it to be a little buggy.

Download it here (http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/)

Looks exactly like Firefox, just quicker and only some of your add ons will currently work.

Oh and it works on Mac's too :D

I'm using Firefox 3.1b1, which has most of the speed. Whatever you use, it doesn't matter, as the future of the web is in Javascript/AJAX, so all browser developers are working on Javascript speed as a priority.

V8 will rock my world.

WebKit's Squirrelfish will be really, really quick too.

We all win!*

*Except for people using Internet Explorer. Btw, if you are, you suck!

Minefield is the codename for the development or "trunk" builds that will eventually become Firefox.

Yeah i figured that whey would work minefield back into firefox as they would be crazy to divide their share of the market.

And yet again they have removed some functionality with this version which are pissing allot of people off. In this case the "New Tab" button which you can add to the Bookmarks Bar via Customise.

If anyone is interested, I am beta testing a New Tab Button add-on by CatThief of the Mostly Cyrstal Theme (http://www.tom-cat.com/mozilla/).

Theres also Stainless, which is supposed to be pretty quick for macs
liquidicity Stainless Browser - Googleless Chrome for the Mac (http://www.gosquared.com/liquidicity/archives/473)

I still love the Add-ons that Firefox provides, hell its the App-store for internet tools!
