katawa, while i have not had any problems with the recent nightlies, a number of people report crashes and memory leaks. there are times when the nightlies do not even start. they are after all, not even betas yet. even when they work, they contain a lot of new code to try to fix old problems, add new features, and take out or change old features, all of which might add new bugs. addons add their own problems, what works fine with the release version may not work at all with the nightlies.

i use the ones from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/

in addition, the nightlies compilations are not optimised for x64, unlike waterfox.

they also use an older compiler. mozilla only runs the 64 bit version as a build check and refuse any support for x64.

so, even if you use nightlies, caveat emptor. best to have waterfox as a fall-back justincase. it's the best of the third party builds when mr.alex has time to keep up the good work.we all hope for a new build when he has the time.

Thread Starter 

Just to let you know the next version of Waterfox is well under way. In fact I've almost got a fully working ICC build, so I'd rather try and get a build ready for the end of this week than releasing another partial VC/ICC build.

 

I'll also reply to all your queries! I'm just really busy with uni and the next release so I don't find myself having much time to reply to everyone's emails/posts. Forgive the tardiness!

No problem! Thanks very much for keeping up with the optimized x64 builds! smile.gif

Only question is, can anyone confirm that on an AMD x64 system Waterfox will not run as well as Pale Moon x64 owing to the compiler?

That's no longer true. Intel used to decrease performance on any processor that wasn't Intel, but they got caught and fined so now that no longer happens. In fact for there to be less performance on AMD CPUs you have to specifically imply it. I use vendor neutral flags so there's no reason to worry about it.

Thank you so very much Mr.Alex..
I really look forward to v25.0
Firefox is so much swifter and faster in general as v25.0 than 24.01 or what ever the previous build was..
Really looking forward to the next Waterfox..smile.gif

Yeah, I also installed the new Firefox v25 on a 32bit system the other day & was more than surprised on the speed improvement sonic.gif from previous versions thumb.gif

Is Waterfox 25.0 ready yet? Firefox 25.0 released about a week ago.
