Waterfox is a high performance browser based on the Mozilla platform. Made specifically for Windows 64-Bit systems, Waterfox has one thing in mind: speed.
What makes Waterfox fast?Waterfox is compiled with Intel's C++ Compiler with the following optimisations: Intel's Math Library, SSE3, AVX for supported Intel processors, Profile-Guided Optimisation and the /O3 switch. Customisations to the base code were also made.
Do all my add-ons and plugins work?Your add-ons/extensions work on any version of Firefox, on any platform! That means they all work with Waterfox. On the other hand, only 64-Bit plugins work with Waterfox and as of now those are: Adobe Flash, Oracle Java and Microsoft Silverlight.
I'm missing libiomp5md.dll, libmmd.dll or svml_dispmd.dllIf for some reason you find yourself missing any of these dynamic libraries, you can install the Intel Redistributable.
