It works with Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, Skype, Google Chrome, SRWare Iron, and more. It will list and pre-select to optimize all the local apps it finds. And, in a PortableApps.com exclusive, the portable version will automatically detect and set itself to optimize Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition (stable, ESR and Test); Mozilla Thunderbird, Portable Edition (stable, ESR and Test); Google Chrome Portable (Stable, Beta and Dev); and Iron Portable.

Sorry to bother you on short notice, but... according to this changelog, they replaced their old icon (speed-o-meter) with a new one (two-legged fox wearing a cape... or is it its hair?).

If it wouldn't be too much to ask, is it possible that the PortableApps.com version of SpeedyFox gets the same replacement?

Thanks for the quick response and for fixing this. I hope I haven't taken much of your time... knowing how extremely little this issue was.
