I may end up going to Waterfox on my desktop machine as well.
Do you know if Waterfox be able to take advantage of improvements made in FF57Q?

You should ask MrAlex! There's a Waterfox thread here on OCN. smile.gif

I'm not sure WF really offers any benefits now that FF is 64 bit. It was amazing when it first came out.

I did switch back to FF when it went 64-bit, but FF57 is making me reconsider that decision.

Other than the add on part this is the best thing since sliced bread.

 

I've had no crashes, everything is blazing fast, tab switching is fast, it's incredible.

 

On WF 54 with two youtube windows open (one paused) it would take ~10-20 seconds to pause or unpause by clicking the screen. FF 56 was about 1-2 seconds. With 57 I tried it with like 9 youtube tabs and they were all responsive as normal. I have no clue what you're on about.

.


yeha i found i weird for exactly this reason, i hope it goes back to the old ui.

thanks. i noticed the better contrast and colors in the new ff compared to chrome.

I'm hoping someone will write a nice gui extension for tweaking the css code. I'd love to have all that UI customization back.

It's not the speed I care about so much as the UI functionality and the fact that WebExtensions has broken functionality in NoScript, in particular. Go to the NS forums and you will see dozens of complaints about NS 10 not working as intended or expected, along with confusing new UI configurations for that add-on.

Same, WF was more trouble and slower than FF 64bit that launched years ago. Even all this multithreading that is touted in V57 has been around for 1-2 years already via E10s and there is no performance improvement over older versions if you had them set right with E10s enabled. I didn't notice losing any customizability by switching back to regular FF from WF ages ago if anything FF was faster and better maintained.

No problems with YT pause/play and many many many tabs, it's all up to the speed of internet connection and how well or snail like YT wants to respond to the requests as some videos have higher priority for them and some very low.

NoScript from my experience was overly aggressive and needed user to white list stuff all the time to even get webs to work at all. Sadly modern web is all riddled with scripts and it doesn't work if you outright block it all.

UI customizations are up the user, always have been with FF, you can do what ever you want if you really want to. No cleartype = sharpest text, screw cleartype blurriness.

Personally I can't use Chrome as it would eat all RAM and CPU, where as FF uses about 2.5GB at most with hundreds of tabs. Text in Chrome is left up to the devs and usually they make it blurry as hell, only once in a while they forget and it's set to sharp text, user setting of front smoothing has been disabled a while ago in Chrome.

In FF you can disable sending anything to Mozilla etc. even the bug reports.
