    Also, as I asked in the SSD browsing thread, what is the advantage of x64 browsing? Thank you!

    Thanks for the heads up..:thumb: And anyone using Cyberfox, you have to uninstall the old version before installing v18, read note in post #151 here:

    ratchet, in answer to your question, AFAIK, because 64 bit systems are able to utilize more memory than 32 bit systems, a 64 bit browser would have more memory to access, if available. This should lead to less slowdowns when you have many tabs open, or plugins being used. Also, I believe very large web pages should render faster.

    Your welcome and thank you too! For I guess about a month now I've been Waterfox for a few days, back to Ff, Cybrf for a few days then back to Ff. I'm going to stick with Cf for a while this time.
