Default Mozilla Minefied x86-64

Anyone here tried out Minefield? Benchmarks show its faster than Firefox 32-bit, but its for 64-bit OS only. But the catch is it is still incompatible with Adobe Flash afaik.

Win64 build doesn't work on 32bit Windows even if you use processor that supports Intel EM64T or AMD64. If you want to use this, you have to install Windows x64 version (Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition or Windows Vista x64).

I've been rocking it for about a month now. And there is a 32bit version. Which does support flash. Haven't actually tried the 64bit version yet.....since it doesn't support flash it's a waste of time IMO.

Oh, there is a 32-bit version? Can you please try this?

I uninstalled Minefield 64 last night, but it scored 93/100 in that test. Firefox 32bit only scores 70/100. IE7 pathetically couldn't even run that test lol.

Here's the latest build of minefield 3.1 beta. That's what I've been using with no problems.

Just installed the 32bit version and ran that Acid Test. Scored a 93/100. Firefox 2 scored 71/100. No Add-ons are compatible, yet, which kind of sucks, but it's fast!

Hey Slippe, if you want the addons, chances are they will work just their install files won't let them be installed on anything newer than 3.0.x. I've done the following for IE Tab, new Tab Homepage, and Foxmarks bookmark synchronizer. All work perfectly fine.

1. save the .xpi file to your PC.
2. open the .xpi file with a zip program and extract the contents to a new folder
3. inside the zip is an "install.rdf" file
4. open "install.rdf" with wordpad
5. in the file, search for "maxVersion" (without quotes)
6. replace what is most likely "3.0.*" with "3.1.*"
7. save the changes and exit
8. rezip the contents back into a zip file
9. rename the zip file to .xpi extension
10. open the .xpi file with Firefox
