I have actually been using Waterfox for a while now biggrin.gif , I was just linking that if anybody didn't know it existed (I guess I should use the search funtion next time:rolleyes:) . Yes, I do know the differences .

Keep up the good work bro grouphug.gif

Ah that's alright. Sorry about my response, it's just that I've had a few users come here and say what's the point of what I'm doing.

That's right. There will be a beta channel (release candidates) and a release channel (for release builds). tongue.gif

I will once Firefox 7 is released. Now that I've got Waterfox builds how I'd like them, it's easier to promote. And it would be a bit strange if every Waterfox update I posted a news thread (plus I don't think it's allowed).

Yay! Loving Waterfox so far!! Ive only had 1 issue and that was flash's fault, but it was fixed in the last flash update.

Great work, keep it up!!

I think you should, if you only want to do it occasionally now would be the best time, since you just got auto updating done.

Awesome, I just split off my Waterfox profile so I can have both release and beta channel versions installed. biggrin.gif

Has anyone been able to get Google Voice and Video chat to work in Waterfox? I don't know if Google has a 64-bit plugin hiding around the interwebs, but I haven't been able to find it.

Whenever I want to use Voice and Video I have to switch to Firefox, which is kinda annoying!

Why not just run Firefox until it's sorted? We're not talking about a whole heap of performance difference between standard Firefox builds and Waterfox really, I know extra performance is nice and all but if 64 bit builds are not doing what you want wouldn't switching to Firefox be the smart solution? Or here's an idea, what about having 32 bit release only builds of Waterfox available until everything is fully 64 bit compatible? That would likely mean there would only be few builds made 7, 8 and 9 perhaps, what are your thoughts on that Alex?

No thank you. Waterfox started out as a 64-Bit version of Firefox and it'll remain like that, otherwise it would defeat the whole point of it. I'm focusing just on 64-Bit, and getting the most out of what it has to offer.

Once again, Waterfox's performance depends on what kind of system it's running on, and what kind of websites are visited.

I usually have two to three different browsers open. WF is always the first choice, Chrome for Goggle apps, and IE for anything else that needs backward compatibility. I feel like I get the best without losing out on anything else by running multiple browsers. As always thanks Alex for all your work!

doh.gif I didn't even think about using multiple browsers. That would make my life easier for sure.
