Waterfox 27.0.2

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 optimization flags: /Og /Oi /Ot /Oy /Ob2 /Gs /GF /Gy

What's new in Waterfox 27.0.2:

  • Waterfox 27.0.2 has been released as a fix to the website recognition bug. This should completely resolve any website errors.

I used for quite a while on the 2 64bit machines I have. Never had a crash, but then again, I don't have crashes in any browser as I don't load a ton of stupid add-ons.

Using Cyberfox right now though. I switch browsers like people switch underwear!! One of the good things about Cyberfox, although nothing to do with functionality particularly, is that there is both a 32 bit and 64 bit of the browser. I think I like Cyberfox a little better than Waterfox.

Was just thinking of playing with PCXFirefox, http://pcxfirefox.sourceforge.net/ again too.
Hey! Just noticed that PCXFirefox has both 32bit and 64bit also.

Used to use it before. Before trying out Cyberfox. But I've gone back to Waterfox now. So far, so good, I like it

I used it for about 6 months, back when it was version 23. It was slightly faster at some things and slower at other things compared to the standard 32-bit version of Firefox. I also had more crashes with Waterfox than the regular version, so I eventually switched back to 32-bit Firefox.
