I tried it.. it's not bad.. doesn't seem to have the memory leak but that could be FF 17...been running it 3 days with about 25 tabs across 7 windows and it's only used 1.3gb... waterfox 16 climbed to over 2gb in barely a day...
the memory leak/not releasing memory, has really been my only complaint with Firefox (32 and 64 bit and variants) for a long time...

Hey, kidz..
Stop fighting.. This is after all a place of joy..
I am as I said before most certain that Mr.Alex is working on the compilation as much as he can. And us fighting and nagging wont achieve a thing. At least nothing more than he losing his interest. He's doing us all a great service.. Thanks a billion times Mr.Alex..

This is a feeble attempt to hijack dedicated Waterfox users to use a browser that I am sure is using the publicly available code of Waterfox. Trying to take advantage of a dedicated person like Mr Alex's busy life and it is sad. I will stand by Waterfox throughout...not saying I won't use any other browser in conjunction, but that is what I do anyway whether Waterfox were in the picture or not. However, to come and promote endlessly and complain not out of interest of the project, but for the sole purpose of promoting another alternative is ridiculous and more representative of what that alternative is really all about. Most here know of quite a few alternatives and yet still make the trip here to check on things...whether registered or not that speaks volumes to the quality of software that is being dispensed here and most that come here know that. More importantly we have access to the developer himself...whom is always considerate and never condescending to anyone even though he doesn't garner the same respect due to release dates. That aspect alone is virtually non-existent in other software and when it is most developers take the line "it will be done when it is done" or not really care what the user wants. Those that do complain can go and do it alone if they don't like the timeline...the source is readily available. Mr Alex owes no one here a single thing...eta timeline or anything...this is a free project...no one loses anything whether updates are released timely or not, but Mr. Alex. I am sure he wants the best for this project and whether he admits it or not it can be overwhelming. We see the requests that are in the forum...imagine the requests in PM, email, and any other means of communication. I can't imagine and then to have the ever nagging presence of expectations from users and ones own need to not disappoint those that ridicule, flame, and all the rest. It's nuts when you consider all these other aspects of providing a free alternative that isn't always appreciated by all...some of which think they are owed something, which ultimately they are not. Mr Alex and Waterfox is doing fine by me and I will gladly wait for the next release, as I am sure it will be a quality release as many of the past have been.

I come here each day, not for updates on the browser but to see how Mr Alex is coming along with issues and what other people are saying. I don't expect updates, they are time consuming when a person has a busy life and is trying to compile some software free for the community. Which is why coming here the past few days I have felt rather sad seeing people complaining. Plain and simple people, if you have not anything nice to say then don't say it. This person has gone out of their way to provide a free alternative to us and some of you are down right ugly to him.
Now, Mr Alex. Can I just please say thank you for all the work you do, I appreciate it and enjoy using waterfox. I personally respect your work and the time you put into it thumb.gif

Well said!

I do appreciate Mr Alex's effort in bringing us into the 21st century with a 64 bit browser as incompetent Mozilla doesnt want to do it because of useless excuses. I do understand he is busy and does this on his own time without being paid so I dont B I T C H about releases (I do wish they came out faster though).

I actually welcome this guy's suggestion of Cyberfox. Just like someone else recommended Waterfox in another forum which brought me here and have been using it as my main browser since. I use several browsers at the same time as I have to log into the same website with different accounts at the same time. I currently use Waterfox, Palemoon and Opera (I want to replace Opera with Cyberfox as Opera sucks). The problem I have is that if I open Waterfox and try to open Cyberfox it only opens a New Waterfox window so I cant have them open at the same time. I have a profile for each but this happens. I am hoping someone can tell me how to do this.

I wish WF was a separate browser to FF and CF, like Palemoon is. We got it to having its own executable but it should store its config and profile on its own.

I dont think it has to be a war between 64bit FF browsers as they all benefit from one another. Try them choose the one you prefer or use them all like myself and support them!

have to agree with demon on this. I know this is a personal issue for myself, but i had a hard time even starting to use waterfox. Using 3rd party programs i tend to stay away from since their is alot of shady programs out there. Especially browsers that can do stuff that they aren't telling you. (log into your bank account with a custom browser, don't know what they do with that information, if its passed around, etc.) So starting a new browser that someone that joined at the end of last month just posted that no ones heard about is kinda eh.... idk how to put it without sounding rude. Alex kind of has a backing with alot of users so if there was something shady about his browser im sure it'd be well known by now, while a new browser that just has popped up is kind of scary to just start using. Again no offense to the author of that program, just won't see me using it unless its been out for years and has been used by several hundred people. Hell i use to use palemoon but once the author said he was going to basically make his own browser, i kind of backed off, nothing to the author of palemoon either.

But yeah, whatever you want to use, use it.
