Waterfox is a high performance browser based on the Mozilla Firefox source code. Waterfox is specifically for 64-bit systems, with one thing in mind: speed.

:withstupid: I've had Waterfox installed on my 64-bit systems ever since it was available. Don't use it as my main browser though since I'm back to Chrome, but it's nice to have around.

I am trying to think water fox I swear it was available back when I was in highschool which is when I think I last used it so over 2 years ago haha but even then I swear I had it through the last few years of school so 2009-2010 and then I ended up with chrome and haven't gone back to Mozilla much preferring the insane simplicity and speed of chrome.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

They do. Usually takes a week or so after each Firefox one, sometimes more, sometimes less.

 

Plus they finally got the entire site redesigned, which is good to see.
