That might have marginally been an issue once upon a time, but now, 
they're likely to be linked to the same binary.  If they aren't linked 
on your implementation, unless you're doing lots of recursive uses of 
grep on extremely large files, I think you'll barely notice any speed 
difference, especially compared to the time it takes to read data from 
the disk or to edit any code.

Since the origin of fgrep, algorithms and computer hardware have come a 
/long/ way.  Certainly in this context, I doubt grep will be a workflow 

For reference, GNU's grep specifically deprecates fgrep in favor of grep -F.
