Waterfox is an open-source web browser based on Mozilla Firefox for 64-bit Windows and OS X systems. As there is no stable 64-bit version of Firefox for Windows yet, Waterfox may be used as an alternative. It is compiled using the Intel C++ Compiler, and uses Intel's Math Kernel Library, Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 and Advanced Vector Extensions. It is compatible with Firefox add-ons and 64-bit NPAPI browser plug-ins. Although Firefox outperformed Waterfox in Peacekeeper browser benchmark tests run by TechRepublic in 2012, Waterfox showed a mild improvement over Firefox in tests run by Softpedia in 2014. Benchmarks are also available on the developers website run on the system Waterfox is built on. Waterfox was presented at an event called “[email protected]” at St. James Palace for Prince Andrew, Duke of York.
To date Waterfox has over 4,000,000 downloads, spanning 180 countries
