"but in Firefox 1.1 we will have binary patching (aka sweet, simple, small, efficient updates)"
That's from the link posted by jdmorgan.
How long did 1.0.4 take to get released? 2 days for the testing version? I'll stick with Firefox, no problem.

I recommend the Stipe optimized 1.0.4 build which just came out.
Be sure to backup your current firefox folder and settings folder before trying this but I think you'll be pleasently surprised at the speed boost.
(for all cpu types)
or self-extracting zip:
I am able to unzip the files right over my 1.0.3 with no profile rebuilding needed.
(some people are reporting a startup error if they use the spellbound extension but Firefox will still work fine)

Thanks for the stipe tip, amznVibe.
After zipping my FF program directories, I installed the .EXE stip-build right into my old FF directory.
No problems, and now surfing with stipespeed! :)

For this upgrade, it is recommended that you do a clean install:

<side note>Google Maps doesn't seem to recognize the Stipe build. Interesting</side note>

I fix google maps by changing the user-agent to be more generic on starup.
Put this into "user.js":
user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0");

As well as Firefox 1.0.4 there is a new version Mozilla 1.7.8 out too.
