building Mozilla (was RE: [vox-tech] stable web browser?!?)



OK, so now I'm interested in building Mozilla... a non-debug, optimized
version as Gabe suggested.  I downloaded the source for 0.9.5, read the Unix
build docs on mozilla.org, and still find myself a bit at a loss.  Any
chance someone could post an example .mozconfig file with some comments on
which options to worry about?

Thanks,
Matt

Mozilla 0.9.5 is rock solid for me. The speed isn't too shabby either,
although you'll most likely notice a slowdown compared to opera or
navigator.

Mozilla 0.9.6 had some issues, so i never used it.

Mozilla 0.9.7 has JS issues, and some memory leaks, but is otherwise
very nice. I'm thinking 0.9.8 is gonna rock if they fix those issues.

I use mozila exclusivelly now. The nice is that you can also use
netscape
plugins. Make sure you either build an optimized, non-debug version --
or
if you're into running other people's binaries, make sure you get an
optimized, non-debug version :) (or else it'll be slow, and you'll get a
wrong impression)
