We're pretty sure that he meant "boombox", but regardless, this funky little hack from music enthusiast Gregor Dauth will be making him a lot of new friends at the next break-dancing competition. For this feat of audiophile-DIY, Dauth gutted an old Grundig tape machine, added four 150-watt speakers, installed an amp he purchased on eBay, and flashed it all up with some blue fiber-optic lighting. The end-result? More ass-shaking low-end then you could possibly want.

Swiftweasel 2.0.0.4.1 (Default branch)

Unfortunately there is no swiftweasel for debian etch/testing:
jordant:~# apt-cache search swift cakephp - MVC rapid application development framework for PHP libnet-dns-fingerprint-perl - library to determine DNS server vendor, product and version starfighter - 2D scrolling shooter game xwpe - Programming environment and editor for console and X11
I had to browse to the SourceForge project page, and download the appropriate version for my machine, which is a athlon64/32bit.
jordant:~# wget "http://downloads.sourceforge.net/swiftweasel/swiftweasel-2.0.0.4.1_06-21-07_athlon64-32bit.tar.gz?modtime=1182563426&big_mirror=0"
I just untar'd the file, and ran ./firefox from within the directory and it picked up all my settings and everything. Next I had to set it up so that I just had to type firefox within a console. So I created a symlink in my 'bin' folder with all my other custom perl scripts and other command line programs/scripts:
[[email protected]:/home/jordant/bin]> ln -s ../swiftweasel/firefox firefox [[email protected]:/home/jordant/bin]> rehash [[email protected]:/home/jordant/bin]> firefox &
I also had to setup my fluxbox keybinding like so:
Mod4 z :ExecCommand firefox &
I originally was using "iceweasel" which is the Debian fork of Firefox, you can read why Debian had to fork Firefox on WikiPedia I do notice a difference, pages load pretty fast and the FasterFox Plugin helps. However they packaged an extension called "AdBlocks" which I've never used and I don't really like. But for now I have just removed it.
Swiftweasel 2.0.0.4.1 (Default branch) - Swiftweasel is an optimized build of the Mozilla Firefox Web browser for Linux. It offers builds for both AMD and Intel processors. Swiftweasel is 100% compatible with all Firefox themes, plugins, and extensions. License: Mozilla Public License (MPL) Changes:
The update notifications feature that made its first appearance in 2.0.0.5pre is installed. When a new version is available, you will be notified so you can get it. Further font rendering improvements were done. Automatic detection of plugins is done in common directories in the file system. A few more build tweaks were made. The "Release Notes" option in the Help section brings up the release notes.
