    [​IMG]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 so that it will run more efficiently and faster than just compiling Firefox as a 64-Bit program. Having been compiled specifically for this type of system, its performance is better than the standard version of Firefox. Icons and names aside, Waterfox is identical to Firefox, and is updated each time you do the main version, with the difference that your executable has been compiled for x64 and Windows systems. Waterfox was compiled with Intel’s C++ Compiler with the following optimisations: Intel’s Math Library, SSE3, AVX for supported Intel processors, jemalloc, Profile-Guided Optimisation and the /O3 switch.

    Your add-ons/extensions work on any version of Firefox, on any platform! That means they all work with Waterfox. On the other hand, only 64-Bit plugins work with Waterfox and as of now those are: Adobe Flash, Oracle Java and Microsoft Silverlight.

    Waterfox 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.

    Waterfox Features:
    • Compiled in Intel’s C++ Compiler
    • Intel’s Math Library
    • strêâmïng SIMD Extensions 3
    • Advanced Vector Extensions
    • Jemalloc
    • Profile-Guided Optimisation
    • /O3 Switch
    • 100% Extension Compatibility
    • 64-bit Plugin Support
    • Future Proof!

    You MUST have Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64) installed! Download it here.

    Changes in Waterfox 27.0.1:
    – Fixed the user agent string. It should now show the correct information. Has the following layout: Mozilla/5.0 (platform; rv:geckoversion) Gecko/geckotrail Waterfox/waterforversion Firefox/firefoxversion
    – Size of the program has been reduced by 14%, while retaining the same JavaScript and WebGL performance

    Firefox 28.0 Changelog
    – A complete, 100% ICC build! Yay! (As opposed to various VC and ICC build).
    – Profile-Guided optimisation is back, which brings nice performance improvements.
    – If you’re running an Intel CPU, support for AVX2, SSE4.2, SSE4.1 and SSSE3 if your processor supports these instruction sets. AMD users, at the moment you only get up to SSE3 support
    – Using Mozilla’s built in memory allocator as opposed to jemalloc, otherwise crashes occur.
    – Finally change the About dialogue to talk about Waterfox and to link to the Waterfox website (links not active yet)
