I recently gave TenFourFoxBox a try. The speed improvement is impressive. In fact, I created TenFourFox Support.app because I couldn't type this RFE in TenFourFox without getting a spinning beachball every couple minutes. In TenFourFox Support.app there's no spinning beachball even with TenFourFox running similtaneously.

As nice as the speed improvement is, there's a couple of things I'd really like to see added to TenFourFoxBox. The first, covered here, is to add the ability to save the current web page. I'm in the habit of saving web pages to establish that the item I received from eBay is really what I purchased or that I really did make that funds redemption from my broker (so why hasn't it shown up in my bank account, yet?). It's rather important that what's saved is faithful to the actual web page, so the FireFox/TenFourFox complete option is what I'd really like.

    Although I can't say I've had issues with support tickets in TenFourFox with any of my systems (I use an iMac G4, an iBook G4 and a Quad G5), the reduction in features is exactly why TenFourFoxBox is faster: there is almost no browser support code of any kind. As a result, I am very reticent to add additional features, and, as candidly as I can put it, unless I started receiving a lot of support requests to add saving web pages I probably won't add this feature either. Sorry: being ruthless about what it does and doesn't support is what keeps it quick.

    That said, foxboxes do have a print option. Why not print and save it to a PDF, if you just need a record?

    I suppose that's a reasonable compromise.
