FireFox 3.0.19 Upgraded! Builds for ev5(21164) now 2.5 times faster

Well the topic says it all! I just figured out why the speed between ev4 and ev6 were so different. It wasn't from the extra instructions but how the order the instructions were emitted to fill the larger cache memory of ev5,ev56,ev6 and ev7 architectures. I created two new builds: one for ev5 and later cpu's and one optimized for ev56 (21146a) and later cpu's. See the attach torrent file and start seeding now!

So I should use the EV56 optimized version on my EV67?

I use the EV56 version on my EV7 (es47) for testing purposes and I don't see that much difference in performance from the EV6 . I will probably only be releasing only EV56 versions in later builds of Firefox... Firefox 3.5 uses a lot more memory than 3.0 so If I get it going (a big if) I will probably only do a EV56 version.
