Overtime, your Firefox browser can become utterly slow because of the fragmentation of databases. The more add-ons, bookmarks, plugins and themes you add, the slower it loads at start-up and the slower it renders browsing histories up to the point that it freezes, or even worse, it crashes!
I’m telling you this by experience, it’s a pain when you’re working on the internet then all of a sudden the browser window gets stuck and all that you can do is refresh or even force refresh (CTRL+F5) the page or worse, close the application and start whatever you’re working on all over again.
Would it be nice if there’s a program that would make your Firefox browser faster than before without any necessary tweaking? I’m sure you’ll be more than glad to have one. Well, you certainly don’t need to go any further because I just might have what you’re looking for.
SpeedyFox is a tiny software utility that optimizes Firefox speed like it used to. The program actually defrag Firefox’s SQLITE databases to achieve faster loading at start-up, faster rendering of webpages, browsing histories and performing with cookies incredibly faster that it seemed like a fresh install.
SpeedyFox auto detects your Firefox default profile but in case you maintain multiple profiles, you can set which one you’d like to tweak. Optimizing your profile is recommended to be done at least once in 1-2 weeks.
So, who would say you’re using Firefox 3.5.2? That version alone won’t make any difference but using SpeedyFox (now version 1.1) along with Firefox 3.0.13 (which is what I’m currently using) could make up a great duo! Believe me, it’s worth the try.
