My Firefox 14 score was 7028
My Waterfox 14 score was 6389

Not much difference, but Firefox won. Go figure.

 

64-Bit browsers perform worse than 32-Bit browsers in anything JS related. But 64-Bit browsers excel in multimedia.

Mine was 6874 for WF and 8104 for FF.

Mr. Alex is right 64bit ones does get a little heavy of JS processes but really excels on multimedia. Also, benchmarks still varies from setup to setup that's why most of it are unreliable. If it feels fast i think that would be enough. thumb.gif

EDIT: ran the test again and FF showed a much higher score. I guess the test still varies from time to time.

Apparently sourceforge removed it or they're having server problems. If you're downloading the installer it's still up here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/waterfoxproj/?source=frontpage&position=4

No need to worry. The website is back up and running. If for any reason the website goes down (which it shouldn't anymore!) you can check the twitter feed:

It's a good start to have 64-bit Java, Flash and Silverlight plugins but there's many, many to go that's needed like QuickTime, Windows Media and Battlelog for Battlefield 3.
And yes, a proper PDF Acrobat plugin from Adobe. Though if you can wait for Firefox 16, there will be inline PDF support which should work in Waterfox too.
Hello

All this is not proper to browsers. There is the same pb with other programs : no 64 bits version of LibreOffice (for example) is previewed. A 64 bits version of MSOffice 2010 does exist but it is not recommended by the authors.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/choose-the-32-bit-or-64-bit-version-of-office-HA010369476.aspx

Firefox 15 will contain a build-in and free PDF reader, formerly PDF.js extension, and will no longer need an Adobe reader/acrobat plugin.

As I said few posts above, a 64 bits browser should not depend on 64 bits plugins : Opera solved the pb with oopp (out of process plugins) method.

I`ve downloaded Version 14.0.2 at your server
My anti virus program, called AVG free, told me the file contains the virus "Luhe.Fiha.A".

Is it true or a false positv?

I'm 100% sure that's a false positive.

If you've downloaded it from SF.net, then there's nothing to worry about.
