    Waterfox is basically 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.

    May require Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package installed.

    Using this currently. 9.0 is faster and feels lighter than 8.0.1.

    I'm using it too - feels much nippier and less sluggish. :thumb:

    Running smooth here as well. :thumb: I midas well uninstall Pale Moon x64 since Waterfox uses Firefox's profile it'll be consolidated.
