    You can download them all either direct from the makers site or direct from http://www.beast-usa.com On the top menu under downloads / browsers.

    I have been switching to this speed dial because it will work in FireFox and all your Chromium based browsers.
    Firefox Add-ons https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fvd-speed-dial/?src=ss
    FVD Speed Dial (you will need to configure it)

    Video DownloadHelper (download videos from the internet)

    Ad Block Plus (block annoying adds on any site)

    Personas (change firefox background skin)

    My Browsers :)
    1. Opera 64bit.
    2. Chromium 64bit (NOT Google Chrome)
    3. Slimjet 64bit
    4. Firefox 64bit

    Opera - REMOVE the google search box from the default speed dial.
    Remove google crap search box from Opera default speed dial. (Advanced - Power User Mode)
    First open settings, then click your left mouse button anywhere on the right in any open area.
    Then using your arrow keys press these:
    "Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right" then type b a
    A box will open to let you into the Power User Mode.
    Then check the "Always show power user settings" box bottom left.
    Now you can disable that crap joke of a search (get what they want you to find) engine. Baffles the mind that some people still use google? LOLOL

    How do you up-date or check the version on your browser?

    Most browsers will be the same, look for Help, under Help look for Check for updates.
    If you don't see that, look for About XXXX browser

    Slimjet 32 or 64 bit
    Click the little gear in the upper right corner. Then move your mouse over Help Center, left click Check update it will check and tell you if you need an update.

    Comodo Dragon:
    Click the dragon in the upper left corner. Then click About Comodo Dragon, it will check and tell you if you need an update.

    Maxthon:
    Top right you will see three bars (mouse over says menu), click the menu.
    Then click About..., Then on the bottom click Check for Updates.

    Opera:
    Top left menu, click help, then click Check for Updates.

    FireFox: (Depending on your menu type.)
    Orange Bar upper left side (Firefox) click the bar, then on the right side go to Help, then
    About FireFox, click Check for Updates.
    Menu Bar, click Help, then click About Firefox, then click Check for Updates.

    Internet Explorer: (IE 10)
    If you have your menu bar showing:
    Click Help, then click About Internet Explorer, check the box that says "Install New Versions Automatically"
    If you don't have your menu bar showing:
    Click the little circle-gear top right side, then About Internet Explorer, check the box that says "Install New Versions Automatically"
    If you are using an older version, 9, 8, 7 or 6. You will need to run Windows updates.

    Safari:
    Check here for the lastest version, http://filehippo.com/download_safari/
    http://support.apple.com/downloads/#internet
    If you are using a Mac, depending on which version of the OS you have will be which version of safari you can use. When you install safari, if you install the extra bloat-ware, it will install an update program that will always be running in the background :) using resources. But it will tell you when to update your apple products.

    Google Chrome:
    Get a different non-tracking, non-spywware browser :)

    Do you use Slimjet?

    Want to download Linux OS or Windows OS in about two minutes?

    Go to settings under downloads and check use turbocharged downloads.
    Set the connections between 2 & 5 and ZOOM download Ubuntu in under two minutes!
    (I tried 1 thru 7 above 5 doesn't seem to get any faster.)

    CLICK ANY PICTURE TO SEE FULL SIZE


    Max was about 9.66MB/s but I couldn't get the screen shot it jumps up and down between 7 & 9.
    And THAT IS MB/s MEGA-BYTES not Mb/s MEGA-BITS :)


    Everyone always confuses MB MEGA-BYTES with Mb MEGA-BITS :)
    8.92 MB/s is 71.36Mb/s

    Updated November 18 2017 New Versions.  

    Test System
    Case - Thermaltake Level 10 GT Battle Edition
    Cooling - Water cooled, Raystorm Waterblock, 270 GPH Pond Pump, 5 Gallon Reservoir.
    Motherboard - Asus Rampage v Extreme (Bios 3101)
    CPU - Intel i7-6950X Extreme Edition @ 4000MHZ
    Memory - 32 gigs Crucial Ballistix Tractical DDR4-3000 15-15-15-33 CR2
    Video Card - EVGA GTX 1080 SC Stock Clock & Cooling.
    Hard Drives - Windows OS's Crucial M550's Raid-0, Xubuntu Seagate SATA III 1tb 64meg cache.
    Storage Drives - 2 Western Digital 5TB 128meg cache, 2 Seagate 2TB 64meg cache.
    Power Supply - Corsair 1050 watt SINGLE RAIL
    OS's Xubuntu x64 and Windows 10 Pro x64 (RS2).

    Opera 64bit for Linux is the fastest browser! And of course Linux is always the fastest OS.:)
    And Opera has changed! You can add FVD Speed Dial, Adblock Plus, Privacy Badger, Lastpass, turn off the annoying side bar!
    There are backgrounds (Wallpapers) or light or dark backgrounds choosing a color would be perfect! Lots of tweaks if you enable "Power User Mode" Still a couple things that could be better :) Home button instead of the default speed dial you don't want anyway. :) (Left of the address bar)
    To get to the "Power User settings". LOL
    Open settings under menu then click anywhere in the settings window click these keys ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → b a then say YES you understand.
    Then in the bottom right make sure to check "Always show power user settings"


    PLEASE REMEMBER BENCHMARK SCORES WILL VERY PER SYSTEM SPEC'S
    THESE WERE RUN ON MY TEST SYSTEM.
    I run all the benchmarks 3 times each clearing the cache before each run. I run all the browsers, then clear everything and run all the browsers again. If you just run the same test three times in a row you will end up with crazy high numbers!

    smile Microsoft says Edge is faster then Chrome & Firefox? Well probably "GOOGLE" Chrome but NOT PURE Chromium or any other blink/chromium based browser and it does NOT beat Firefox. So I smell a little BS from MS. :) Edge is the fastest of the slowest browsers maybe that's what they meant? It is faster then Google Chrome, IE, Safari and that's about it!

    If your Firefox seems slow go to Addons and search and install "Classic Theme Restorer". It's the classic look not the google chrome look and it's FASTER. :)
