    foxPEP & Classilla (Optimized Classilla prefs.js?)

    Hi everyone! EDIT: It seems that foxPEP improves Classilla... See #5 and onward. I'm absolutely no expert in browser-optimization or hell the "software" side of things, but as I was thinking about the sheer amount of speed that foxPEP gave to TenFourFox, I was wondering if anyone ever had the...

    Introducing a new way to run OS 9 on supported non-G4 and G5 macs, 100% compatible!
