Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 281

post #2801 of 7225
Just wanted to give feedback on new flash player. So far so good. Watched a few Youtube videos with out any hiccups and the glitches i was experiencing with the previous version seems to happen less. This is on Firefox 14 beta.

Essentialy. Waterfox uses Intel's C++ Compiler though, whereas Palemoon uses Microsoft's compiler. My aim is to keep the user experience the same as Firefox while providing backend improvements.

I think I stated before that soon I'll start to implement OpenMP as well.

thanks for the replies. not sure what OpenMP is, but i'm trying out both, and both seem faster than stock firefox. and they both seem more stable too. for example, how flash would crash about every 10 minutes or so with stock firefox (i think this is a known issue with flash from what i've read in other forums), but with palemoon or waterfox i cant say i've noticed flash messing up as much/as frequently.

to be honest both waterfox and palemoon seem equal to my untrained eye. in fact i bet if i did a blind test i would not be able to tell the difference between them. actually the ~only~ difference i notice is palemoon not displaying that..not sure what it is called, when you click on a link and the url text is displayed in the lower left bottom corner? in palemoon that is hidden, but waterfox it is displayed like in stock ff. (see image) 155
other than resorting to an add-on is there any way to turn that off in waterfox? thanks

Like djkilla said. PaleMoon is drastically taking a different direction. They customized it and removed some original features such as the thing you just mentioned. It's still 100% sourced to the original FF code but it's like a completely new browser and from what I saw from their forums even the start page of firefox will be removed on the latest version of PaleMoon. On the other hand WF remains true to the original features while optimizing the code under the hood.

Actually, in respect of the Status bar mentioned above, the disappear/reappear thing is very new to Firefox, Pale Moon retains something much closer to the original Firefox Status bar which is highly customizable. (Alt) Tools > Status Bar Options - after you have enabled the Status bar from the View menu, of course - (Alt) View > Toolbars > Status bar. < note that the Status bar was a feature of Firefox, now it's reduced to a little distracting popup thing.

Drastically different direction? No, Pale Moon's actually staying truer to Firefox as a browser than Firefox itself has been recently.

Firefox Start page, why would that need to be in Pale Moon anyway, all Mozilla/Firefox browsers still have about:home?

yeah, i'm not seeing the drastically different thing either. if anything it appears official ff is going more towards chrome. and there is a reason why i dont like chrome and will never use it. as an aside, i've been using ff before it was even called ff (i think back then it was just called mozilla browser or something).

about that ff url status box thingy that newer ff versions use. pale moon got rid of it somehow. i know i can use stylish to get rid of it too, but was looking for a more elegant solution smile.gif
really other than that, i cant tell the difference between waterfox and pale moon. i think they are both equally better than stock.

Just signed up. And started today with Waterfox.

Thanks for a 64-bit variant. Have been using 32-bit FF for a while now though I'm running Windows 7 64-bit.

Any pointers on a 64-bit email client for Windows 7? I use Thunderbird but that's 32-bit too.

Hey guys!

After reading Waterfox's support page a few minutes ago, I thought it a good idea to register with you smile.gif

And, of course, I have question: My installation of Waterfox doesn't mark RSS feeds which I already have read. You know what I'm talking about? Here's a screenshot:
303

Now this is a screenshot of Firefox, I know, but this happens in Waterfox as well. Maybe this is an engine error?

Anything missing... ah, yes: Firefox is v13.0.1, Waterfox 13.0

Thanks in advance for your support,
kringel

on a whim I decided to try Pale moon one day...found it to be severely lacking.. waaay slower than waterfox and overall not anywhere close to being as smooth

just my opinion of course, but for me, pale moon was a pale comparison
post #2810 of 7225
I am using palemoon, started with it after waterfox (wich I still ocasionally use, to test, waiting for 14) started continuolsy crashing on me
I dont find much difference between both relatve to speed and smootheness.

But it WOULD be nice to see some benchmarks biggrin.gif
