Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 436

post #4351 of 7341
Thought I would pop my head in to see how Waterfox is doing. I'm getting ready to test all the Firefox 64bit browsers to see which has the highest performance. Noticed that a new player has popped-up, Cyberfox, to join in the 64bit browsers offered. Have to add this to the list of browsers to test. Anyway, I'm still using the very powerful HTGuard Firefox 64bit browser ( http://www1.ocn.ne.jp/~htguard/ ) and I'm happy to see Waterfox and others continue to offer 64bit builds of Firefox. thumb.gif

Which do you think is the best 64bit browser?

The HTGuard one he mentions has worked well for me in the past, and usually appears the same day Firefox goes official - as do the weekly Beta builds. Having said the above, I should also mention I've never personally been affected by any of the strange Flash problems that some people complain about, so don't read too much into my own opinion.

Yes, WF is still being offered. Unfortunately, MrAlex doesn't seem to have time to keep up with the updates. Or, he's losing interest. redface.gif

With compilation being blocked by a single bug, nothing happening in that ticket (I guess for the lack of people having that problem) and the Waterfox dev not having time or interest to work around it I guess it's safe to say Waterfox is dead in the water :-o

I guess that Mr Alex seeing all those troll posts feels some kind of frustration. If I was him I would send to hell some m@l@k@s. (yes, yes the famous greek word with the a's wink.gif)

I know a lot of posts got deleted, but from the remaining ones I can only see genuine concern, interest in Waterfox as a spare time and unpaid project, and of course the discussion what to do in the meantime up to when or if a new Waterfox version can be compiled.

I don't know that Waterfox is considered a development project. It is the compilation of a 32-bit program into a 64-bit program. Whether or not it's a dead project remains to be seen. I think MrAlex would let us know if he decided to abandon it. He hasn't.
