We all know that Firefox is open source, but I wonder how many browsers are available based on Firefox source code.

Also I wanted to know how many have downloaded the source code and modified it for you needs or atleast have seen the code.

Ever since I moved to gentoo, I compile firefox on my own PC, from the source code.

Just compiling the source code to get the executable doesn't count. I think the poll question asked if you have modified or customized the source code according to your need.

For some this may be a very old news :rolleyes:
dont u ppl heard about swiftfox-optimized for diffrnt processor archtkrrs? :D
Swiftfox is an optimized build of Mozilla Firefox. Swiftfox has builds for both AMD and Intel processors. The 2.0.0.6 release is based on Firefox 2.0.0.6.

The trunk is the most cutting edge of all the builds and is where Firefox 3 is being developed.

Branch builds are built from a code base that has been tested much more than the trunk and therefore should be considered to be more stable.

Swiftfox 2.0.0.7pre is from the 1.8 branch which is where Mozilla tests security patches and other minor fixes before they release the next Firefox update. If you want your security patches as soon as possible and require a browser built from a stable code base this build is perfect for you.
