Firetune: Speeding up Firefox

Anyone else using Firetune? I just downloaded it and it seems like it does speed up Firefox pretty good. I also did the 3 common tweaks that are all over the internet. Someone also mentioned Fasterfox to me, but I don't know if I want to get that since I already have Firetune. Also, the idea of prefetching links doesn't sound too good to me.
