Speeds up Safari.

Overview

TurboKit is software that will speed up Safari by at least 1.9X the speed. What it does is replace your WebKit and JavaScriptCore framework of computer with custom built engines that will juice your computer's speed and let it run at maximum potential!

TurboKit is a one time install. You will see no traces of it but speed increases! If you wish to uninstall you may go to our website to download the uninstaller. Visit Gage Theory Software's website here.

Tried it and not really practical... Safari 4 Beta is faster or might as well get the latest WebKit (webkit.org) with SquirrelFish Extreme.

I've tried and it does speed up, not as twice but it's faster. I use webkit's nightly builds and turbokit helped. Mind you, I'm in a freshly installed leopard in a G4. Pity that there are not more versions, because it did work for me.

Looks like the 2x speedup is refuted by this page: http://www.turbokitproject.com/statistics.html on the developers site. Not to mention that WebKit nightly will smoke the pants off this. This will be obsolete before it can mature. I'll happily recant if the developer reveals the modifications he's making and updates his outrageous claims. Additionally he'll need to make his source package available per the WebKit license. To the dev: why not just contribute to WebKit if you've developed a revolutionary performance advantage? Marked 1 star to keep the naive users from downloading this until we know what it does.

Why not just use Webkit..? Safari Plugins still work with it and its faster.

Man... You're getting killed with these reviews. One question before I try this out: What exact files are being changed? I need to know all of them so that if I don't like this I can restore them all from a backup. Thanks!

This Installer replaces critical system components with its own and provides no documentation on what changes are made to webkit to provide the claimed performance boost. The installer does NOT backup your existing webkit install. The "uninstaller" simply installs another copy of the webkit components that are included in the uninstaller bundle - it does NOT restore the original webkit files that resided on your system prior to installing the modified versions. You have to trust that the version the uninstaller provides is the same as that which was originally on your system, which it will most certainly not be in the event of any Apple software updates targeting webkit or javascriptcore. In other words, this is not a safe product and I would most definitely stay away from it. In addition, the product website just reads like the marketing hype you get in spam emails - making wildly unrealistic claims ("twice as fast!") and providing no details on the actual functions of the product. No good!

Well, I'm going to give it whirl and see what it can do. Installation was smooth, and Safari appears snappier. Since the developer is making an effort, I will give them the benefit of the doubt and see where the road takes me. Life is short, at least there are those who are stretching the boundaries to where new paths lead before it ends.

It does not use webkit nightly builds. I modified the framework that already came with mac osx. By the way, is there any positive feedback?

This appears to use webkit. Whilst I use it as my main browser at the moment, the nightly builds are unstable. Does that not mean that this product is going to install an unstable framework for use with critical applications such as mail and safari? The stable code is safari so I don't see what benefit using the stable code would yield.

TurboKit integrates much better with Safari then WebKit does. Also it speeds up all WebKit based applications applications, not just Safari as the webkit nightly builds do.
