myself, I am using 2.30 as it is small (39 Mb as tar.bz2 / 40 Mb as *.deb, or 80 Mb installed) and does really all what I requires from a browser (excepted discretion: each one having access to the PC can open the idiotic ~/.mozilla dir excepted if you erase it before restart / shutdown or if you use no saving system). you only have to add a libflashplayer.so in size from 9.747 up to 15 Mb (both installed) depending of your needs of compatibility with the requirements of the providers of the flash objects you are using (google's youtube is satisfyed with a version 15 Mb sized)

2.30 is, as far as I know, the last release with the included language xul using the lib libxul.so (expanded 59 Mb ; the SliTaz get-flash-plugin package installs a firefox with over 80 Mb as dependencie of flash allthough it don't use firefox because the wonderfull actual tazpanel, core of the graphical administration of the system in the own browser tazweb, needs webkit! I did try to activate flash without that heavy firefox and did until now never more have success! hm webkit + an hidden firefox, that is an heavy environment else if you consider that midori and xombrero are operable with only some kb more...). didiwiki seems don't to be easily operable so that SliTaz must offer other fater wikis (different ones). and the hidden firefox is less interess for other usages as developpers (so instantbird etc.) are sad to encountre each day actualisations of firefox... is firefox really so insecure or is that a commercial manipulation to force to upgrade firefox according secret commercial bases with for ex. Adobe?

I've been looking at the performance of recent 64 bit releases,
and have been quite satisfied. Fatdog 720/721 includes SM 2.48
which uses Firefox 51 back end.

On Xenial64 7.5 and Tahr64 6.06 I've installed SM 2.49.2 which
uses Firefox 52.6 back end. Very good performance on all kinds
of web sites including a variety of videos.

I use:
1. no extensions
2. latest flash player
3. MVPS hosts file (ad scrubbing)

From the standpoint of (current) performance, I'd rank SM right
up there with Firefox quantum, Google Chrome, Waterfox and
Basilisk. Haven't found a web site that gives any of them
a problem.

SM 2.49.2

fortunately it's still possible to build SM under use of gtk2 and without pulseaudio.
I'm using version 2.49.2 and have to say "very stable and fast".
Up to now without problems.
