The best of the firefox clones, but! 5 stars by henerey773 Oct 06, 2016 (Read all my 15 reviews)
Waterfox does a great job of auto-importing one's FF Profile, and then runs complex web pages a bit faster (it seems, for me). All good so far. BUT, next time I ran standard FF 45.01 my "about:config" "xpinstall.signatures.required", tweaked to a 'false' toggle, it was reset to the default 'true'. This results in some unsigned extensions not working. For me the obvious one was my Speed Dial home page, which still oddly worked in W'fox but not in FF. I had to go into the FF about:config and toggle it to false. Who knows what other tweaks it may have reset? show Review details
Good deal 5 stars by wnelweb835 Feb 15, 2015
I rather like the Waterfox browser. It is fast and seems to work great on my 64 bit laptop. Have not yet tried it on my desktop, but I have to say, I am liking it very much so far. Loads quickly and gets to the websites quickly and completely. I world definitely recommend it! show Review details
Meh - nothing to write home about 3 stars by EmpressTrudy Feb 11, 2015 (Read all my 16 reviews)
Even their own benchmarks don't show much improvement over 32 bit. But this is true with nearly 100 of everything in 64 bit Windows world. A few plug ins don't work unless you can dig up 64 bit versions but the real issue is that it really doesn't provide much of an advantage at all. 64 bit is pretty much a scam in Windows on the desktop and no one cares. show Review details
