Firefox Optimized with SSE2SSE

SSE is CPU extension, improve loading.
  1. All builds are for Windows 2000 and above only. (Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 are all above Windows 2000)
  2. SSE builds are optimized for Pentium III/equivalent.
  3. SSE2 builds are optimized for Pentium IV/equivalent.
  4. The above list is sorted by versions in descending order i.e. the recent versions are at the top of the list.
  5. All builds have the full functionality as the official builds from Mozilla i.e. no loss of functionality as a result of any tweaks.

With SSE2 patched Firefox is much faster !

Although  Google Chrome is the fastest, it has problem when browsing problem with some old website and it does not have much pug-in to speed up your usage of Internet. So Firefox with SSE2 patched is much first choice.
