Waterfox is a 64-bit compile of the latest version of Firefox. The pro is that it's faster. The con is that it doesn't offer anything different from Firefox other than speed.

Pale Moon has both 32- and 64-bit versions and has more customization options. The pro is that you have more options available. The con is that it consumes more resources than Waterfox.

If you want speed, download Waterfox. If you want to customize, download Pale Moon.

Get it while it's hot! https://db.tt/KejOxnBH

This will be the official release of Waterfox 26. If everyone could test and let me know if anything is wrong!

I figured out what was wrong with the WebGL support...there wasn't anything wrong. So I've been scratching my head for the last two weeks only to realise that since I compile WF in a VM, there isn't any proper 3D support. Oh well better late than never!

I think that all works correctly. I tested it on XP, 7, 8.

WF26 appears to be functioning correctly for me while clicking around across a variety of web sites. Win7

Had trouble getting the download to install but uninstalled v24 and went fine.

Working fine for me.

Extracted the RC to a new folder and running with no problems.

As with many new versions, a few of the add-ons I use are not coded as being compatible with version 26.
post #5487 of 7367
try using https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/checkcompatibility/ - it disables compatibility checking and, whilst there is always the chance that an add-on might not work with a new version, I find that it is very seldom that any problems occur.

Only fault I've seen so far, is that it doesn't render EBay item pages correctly.

It has officially been released! Assuming there aren't any show-stopping bugs that have appeared the automatic update will be released in a bit.
