TenFourFoxPEP is a heavily modified version of foxPEP 2.2 Gratitude designed to leverage the abilities of TenFourFox's variant of the Firefox 45 codebase, in order to squeeze out slightly more performance out of the notoriously slow browser.

The user can typically expect faster site loading, smoother page scrolling, and lower memory usage when TenFourFoxPEP is paired with TenFourFox as opposed to vanilla foxPEP.

Otherwise, vanilla foxPEP is recommended for Firefox 52 and up, available @ GitHub.

foxPEP version 2.0, bearing the new codename Ingenuity, has been released!

Starting now, foxPEP will no longer be hosted on Macintosh Garden and will instead be based in GitHub for a multitude of reasons, including expansion potential, exposure, convenience, and cooperative endeavoring just to name a few. This includes future updates, notifications, and all other activity concerned.

Ingenuity marks the debut of the Bloat Trimming Engine, which blocks out ad and tracking servers from using bandwidth and resources, thus accelerating site loading times and all-around responsiveness. Not only that, scrolling performance has seen a massive consistency improvement from version 1.9.2 thanks to new modifications in frame rate and WebGL configurations, images render even faster than before after altering key image rendering settings, and resource efficiency has been improved by tweaking cache and JavaScript handling. And, webpages are now prone to 'snap' open due to adjustments made in page painting.

Plus, a new document has been included, dubbed 'The foxPEP Guide To The Internet', which will serve as a "hub" of sorts for lightweight browser options, future links to optimized browser builds, and pointers for how the user can further improve browsing performance by themselves.

New horizons await!

foxPEP has been updated to version 1.9.2.

1.9.2 makes further improvements to page loading times, scrolling fluidity, content rendering, and script size.

Feedback is welcome. Smile

foxPEP has received a minor update to 1.9.1.

1.9.1 brings an improved Read Me with no changes to the script itself.

foxPEP version 1.9 has been released!

1.9 brings many new advancements, including (but not limited to):

o Major rendering performance improvements
o Server connection speed improvements
o Site and browser compatibility improvements
o Better resource efficiency
o Comprehensive line cleanup (leaner script)

Throw it at everything you've got!

A minor adjustment has been made so that Firefox now leverages OS X's native Quartz graphics layer, which improves page scrolling and rendering performance, especially for certain 10.4 browsers that lack GPU acceleration. This change should take effect on everything from 10.4 to at least 10.13.

Otherwise, all other operating systems will continue to default to Firefox's built-in Skia graphics rendering layer, which is faster than Cairo.

foxPEP version 1.8 has been released!

1.8 brings many new improvements and refinements to the existing formula, such as:

A new engine dedicated to browsing efficiency that is responsible for lowering RAM, CPU, and disk usage... And an overhauled installation guide so easy to follow, now even a grandparent can breeze through!

Faster website loading, bug fixes, and better browser compatibility also accompany this release, among other, smaller changes to make for a better user experience.

-

Not accounting for augmentative point releases, 1.8 will also be foxPEP's last update for a better chunk of the year, as I feel the patch (and everything surrounding it) has now grown mature enough to a point where it can stand on its own without issue for a much longer period of time than previous iterations. So for anyone still on the fence, now would definitely be a great time to try, even if only once - and no more than that.

Enjoy the Web!

The Firefox Partitioned Engine Patch has been updated to 1.7, hot off the press.

1.7 is a bugfix, performance, and fluidity update. Therefore, changes should be felt in all three aforementioned areas.

For the best experience, installing with a fresh profile is recommended.

PowerUOC VI is ready, with a fresh coat of paint AND now boasting 95% to 100% compatibility with most Mozilla browsers across architectures! It should now work flawlessly on everything from a 400 MHz PowerPC G3 w/ Arctic Fox 27.9.16, all the way to a 4 GHz 28 core Xeon workstation w/ Firefox 72.

Enter PowerPEP, PowerUOC completely rebuilt from the ground up, designed to place an emphasis on only the essentials, while covering all the accoutrements via four specialized "engines", each one curated to churn out the absolute best delivery of their specialized departments.

And that's not even to mention the new additions included!

Needless to say, this is the most secure, compatible, and performant release ever made. Take it to town on every machine and OS you've got, and if you're impressed, tell everyone about it!

Let's make browsing faster, together!
