Waterfox 2022.01 Classic / G4.0.6 (4th Generation )

Waterfox is a high performance browser based on the Mozilla Firefox source code. This 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. Therefore that it will run more efficiently and faster than just compiling Mozilla Firefox as a 64-Bit program.

Waterfox focuses on giving users choice while also helping make the world a better place. It is partners with Ecosia, a search engine that plants trees with its generated revenues. The browser itself is focused on power users, which lets you make the important decisions.

There is no plugin whitelist, you can run whichever extensions you like and absolutely no data or telemetry will be send back to Mozilla or the Waterfox project.

This web browser is based on the current stable Firefox build, which means it functions in exactly the same way. Aside from its name on the menu at the top of the main window, there’s nothing to differentiate it from Firefox. Waterfox shares your Firefox settings, so should you come to uninstall it. Don’t select the option to delete all personal information if you’re still using Firefox. And your add-ons and extensions work on any version of Firefox, on any platform!

    You have to try Cyberfox instead! It's 64-bit too but with optimized for different CPU brands (Intel and AMD) go to for more information. In my opinion, Cyberfox it's cloned from firefox nearly 99% but use own profile!

    In fact, the Waterfox is only one bunch of failures. And this - Version 30.0 is only a draft. The latest is still 28.0. And almost nothing not working properly in version 30.0. A complete preform.

    Waterfox 26.0 is very stable on Win7 64bit. All extensions are working even ABE 2.0.9 .

    Firefox started quiting on me, all the time 10.2. So now I use Pale moon as 32 bit, and Waterfox 64 bit. Waterfox is running real good now

    For 64-bit I like Pale Moon

    Midnight, I know about that. I'm wanting to say: Waterfox 64 bits is being the best of all of the browsers. Is everything that I wanted to say! Waterfox is must!

    I'm impressed . Faster than Chrome. I really enjoyed and has migrated to the Waterfox . Finally a 64 bit Mozilla, very good!

    @arsenalz - This is not Mozilla, but like Palemoon, is a Firefox clone. Difference is, Waterfox 8.01 is 64 bit only! Firefox will soon be released in 64 bit (Version 10) and will be better than this and Palemoon
