Sub_title: Definitley faster
 

For Phenoms Only (Barcelona core, probably Athlon II's)

A Version of Firefox 4.0.1 compiled in Lucid 5.2.5. Also tested in Lucid 5.2.5 but my work in other Puppies.

With the Highest degree of Optimization (-O3) for AMD K10 Family CPU's (which makes it not work on other cpu's)

On Peacekeeper Browser Benchmark the regular Firefox for Lucid scores an average of 3380 while this version scores an average of 3660.

That's only about 8% I think, which is about he highest that can be expected, again I think.

It seems to score slightly higher when the i686 version of libc is installed.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/Firefox-4.0.1-lucid525-amdfam10.pet

This can be done for other cpu's of course--I am working on an intro to compiling for Puppy that explains some of what I have been discovering.
