Download Waterfox 16.0.1 without AVG Toolbar

Waterfox | The fastest 64-Bit variant of Firefox!

Waterfox is a 64-Bit version of Firefox. The Firefox source code is taken and compiled to run specifically for 64-Bit Windows computers. To make Waterfox stand out a bit more, it’s compiled with optimizations so that it will run more efficiently and faster than just compiling Firefox as a 64-Bit program. For some people with older systems, the 64-Bit version loads quicker and is much more responsive than the 32-Bit build.

How does it compare to 32-Bit Firefox?
In benchmarks, the 64-Bit variant of Firefox out-performs the 32-Bit variant. Also because this variant is being built specifically for Windows, there might be further performance increases.

Were there any optimisations made?
Yes, Waterfox was compiled with SSE, SSE2, x64 favoring and the following optimisation flags: /Og /Oi /Ot /Oy /Ob2 /Gs /GF /Gy

  • Initial web app support
  • Improvements around JavaScript responsiveness through incremental garbage collection

Never using this crap again. His updates were always slow and he just completely drove me off for good after the AVG security toolbar trash. Even if it's removed now, I'd rather stay away.

Man, don't tell me they're cramming crap tool bars in with their installs?

Glad I quit using it when we got FORCED to allow crap like plugin wrappers to have to communicate with the net! I know, simply disable flash and that becomes a non issue. Still, if I can't control that easier than that, I simply won't use it. Most of that is a non issue for anyone else, but it frustrates the heck out of me!!

I have Seamonkey with flash disabled. That's all the Mozilla browsers I need.
