Waterfox 27.0.1


Recommended Posts

Waterfox | The fastest 64-Bit variant of Firefox!

Waterfox is a 64-Bit version of Firefox. The Firefox source code is taken and compiled to run specifically for 64-Bit Windows computers. To make Waterfox stand out a bit more, it’s compiled with optimizations so that it will run more efficiently and faster than just compiling Firefox as a 64-Bit program. For some people with older systems, the 64-Bit version loads quicker and is much more responsive than the 32-Bit build.

How does it compare to 32-Bit Firefox?

In benchmarks, the 64-Bit variant of Firefox out-performs the 32-Bit variant. Also because this variant is being built specifically for Windows, there might be further performance increases.

Were there any optimisations made?

Yes, Waterfox was compiled with SSE, SSE2, x64 favoring and the following optimization flags: /Og /Oi /Ot /Oy /Ob2 /Gs /GF /Gy

Changelog Waterfox 27.0.1 ( 20 Feb 2014 ):

  • Fixed the user agent string. It should now show the correct information. Has the following layout: Mozilla/5.0 (platform; rv:geckoversion) Gecko/geckotrail Waterfox/waterforversion Firefox/firefoxversion
  • Size of the program has been reduced by 14%, while retaining the same JavaScript and WebGL performance
