Waterfox 53: 24 April [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 513

post #5121 of 7308
Firefox v21 just came out today, hopefuly we'll see an update to Waterfox before June as it's been quite a while since v18 :\

But it's good to know mralex is still working on Waterfox, I'd like to at least give it another try with some benchmarks to see if the Intel compiler really is faster - but even if, well, I would understand if some people might decide that an up-to-date and secure browser is more important than a bit more speed you might not even realize in real world web surfing.

CyberFox 21 is noticeably SLOOOOWWWWER than Firefox 21 (19 and 20 were comparable to Firefox)

So, dumped CyberFox, patiently waiting for WF ...

Really - how did you find out, did you run benchmarks? I just switched an cannot see any speed regressions, Cyberfox seems to be as fast and stable as I've gotten used to (but of course I expect Waterfox to be even faster, when and if wf arrives).

the usual benchmarks have always shown cyberfox to be slower than firefox (at least on my machine, quad core AMD) - but I'm talking about the "feel" of it. Noticeable lag just switching tabs!!

I've been using waterfox since version 5. I was really excited...but now I'm disappointed...
Found this photo on waterfox's page on facebook...and wanted to share it with you.


I m going for nighty...good luck to the patient fellows that wait the new update.

Yes, both Cyberfox and the htguardmozilla x64 project have had the V21 update out almost a week now ....

Thanks, but Palemoon has features removed that I need to use on a regular basis.

As for Cyberfox, I've simply heard of too many issues being caused it, especially the (un)installer causing registry issues etc. that I'm not going to risk trying it unless the developer starts releasing it without an installer (e.g. in a zip file).

I'm sorry, I tried searching this thread, but I"m still new to the forum. I'm using Waterfox 16.0.1, and I've had issues that when I move my cursor up towards the right-hand corner quickly, Waterfox closes. Even if I have multiple tabs open, (and I have warn me when closing multiple tabs) there's no warning, no nothing, Waterfox just closes. And when I start it back up, all my tabs are gone.

Am I doing something wrong? Is this a problem with Windows 7 64 bits? I never had this issue with Firefox.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
