Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 517

post #5161 of 7341
installed cyberfox 22, but after a couple of days and updating all my addons it began giving me some weird issues i never had on waterfox, after trying to fix the problem it still continued.

finally gave up and went back to waterfox, ill be sticking to this from now on....

I don't intend to put any pressure on anyone but I would like to ask if anyone has heard anything about a new build?
I mean the last entry on twitter are getting quite old and I haven't seen a single life sign anywhere from MrAlex.

2013-04-07
" Just an update to let everyone know Waterfox is still under development! Due to computer issues there's a little delay. Sorry about this! "
2013-02-27
" Waterfox 19 is on it's way, another compiler bug has been found and is being resolved. "

I have full understanding about he being busy and having compiler issues and so on.
I only wanted to check to see if anyone has heard anything not published here or on twitter.
Perhaps MrAlex himself could post a progress report of sorts.smile.gif

After all, most of us posting and reading on this thread really love his work.smile.gif
There is no browser better than the Waterfox browser on Windows x64.

Waterfox is dead, I hope the author would just admit it once and for all, no pun intended.

Since Firefox itself is Open Source, anyone can download and recompile it as they please. In this case what MrAlex does is recompiles FF for 64-bit systems and introduces optimizations in the compiler to make it run faster on said 64-bit systems. smile.gif

While I don't agree with your opinion, I'll defend your right to post it to the death ... pun intended

Just the question is pressuring our MrAlex for updates because if he'd want to share anything about the ongoing wf development process he'd do it - if he chooses to concentrate on working on wf rather than support it through the official support channels we have to accept his decision, so keep scanning this thread for hot waterfox news!

But not on any compiler - MrAlex' historic landmark achievement was to make it compile with icc, and even he as an great expert was hindered by nasty compiler bugs turning up multiple times out of nowhere delaying the releases.

This thread would nearly consist of "wf is dead" posts if the ever-vigilant mods wouldn't help the wf community by cleaning it up time and time again and removing most critical notions about wf - let's stay positive, keep the faith of the wf community!

No way! If so, MrAlex would have told us, but he wrote the exact opposite multiple times - if you don't believe him go an use Cyberfox! In fact all the skipped ff releases can only mean one thing and one thing alone - with all this preparation time wf 22 will be the most awesome browser ever, I expect the announcement in this thread every day!

You came from a sworn Cyberfox user to a sworn Waterfox fanatic now smile.gif

Nonononono :-p ... I am just forced to use cf because arguably you cannot use wf based on code with known security flaws in the open internet, and for some reason or another wf18 showed some regressions in select benchmarks ... and of course cf is well supported and updated the moment any new ff is out, major or minor version ...

... but if MrAlex would release a current wf and update it now and again, say more often than ever half year, I'd go back to the world's real fastest browser in an instant because I still believe the Intel compiler should be able to do optimizations the boring msvc doesn't do. Plus of course the dedicated wf community and the observant mods make this thread so satisfying to participate in. So remember: August 6 is ff day, and it's probable wf will go straight to v23...

Not holding my breath. Seems we have heard this same mantra since v18. When was that? Oh yeah, last January!

No kidding and as it's been months without even a word from MrAlex about anything, personally I've written this off as an abandoned project.
Of course I'd be love to be proven wrong... but it's almost been half a year since the last update. So as you said, I'm not holding my breath either.

I used to use Waterfox all the time, but had to abandon it a while ago due to lack of (security) updates.
