For those of you using it, you may wish to know that v188.8.131.52 of BonEcho is now available. BonEcho is an optimized version of Firefox, with versions available optimized specifically for:
- Intel Macs
- G4 Macs
- G5 Macs
It is called BonEcho vs. "Optimized Firefox" because it is a private build of the open source Firefox source code, with specific optimizations applied. It cannot be called Firefox, since Mozilla rightly reserves that name for itself.

I am using the G5 optimized version, and I can confirm that it feels much faster than the stock Mozilla version.
My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
