Is this just a MEME or is it a better browser if you care about privacy and like firefox addons?

Just get firefox and adjust the config to make it privacy-respecting. You get faster updates and it runs better.

Impossible.

No, Waterfox has code changes to disable telemetry that can't be disabled with settings on Firefox.

Samuel Gutierrez

Yes it is. I use Waterfox and love it. Like Cuckfox only with added improvements. Dev wants to continue legacy addon support too so after FF57 will be MILES better. Read more about it here:
https://www.waterfoxproject.org/
No you can't disable some stuff like Telementry and CuckFox x64 doesn't allow non-flash plugins or unsigned addons.

Not sure that supporting shitty coded addons that prevent multiproc support is "miles better".

Because if all I wanted was Chrome addons I'd be using a Chrome clone. I'm glad you've accepted that's what FF57+ is.

Blake Hughes

prevent multiproc
They are already e10s compatible.
shitty coded
Describes most WebExtensions.

I need addons with some power and actually can customize some stuff. Might as well use Chrome if you only want shitty WebExtensions with watered down/shitty api.

Michael Taylor

A lot of old addons are not e10s compatible.

Leo Williams

He's giving addon makers months or even more to convert or update the addons people use, even as fireshit drops the guillotine. Waterfox will literally have more features than fire for a long time.

So when ublock and noscript etc are developed primarily for the new Firefox, will legacy still get support and updates? For someone using Waterfox, IceCat etc

Nolan Myers
Nolan Myers

Pretty much.
Hopefully indefinitely.
Mozilla is retarded and won't ever include the needed apis and webextensions are way too restrictive.

Joseph Flores
Joseph Flores

Pretty much.
So, when should i see the speed improvements over firefox?

Asher Reyes
Asher Reyes

I think gorhill (uBlock Origin guy) said he won't be supporting legacy stuff, but I could be misquoting. It's too much time to support legacy when most everyone is moving forward.

Lincoln Jenkins
Lincoln Jenkins

Maybe right away? It's compiled against amd64 or whatever so might give you more muscle. Either way the privacy improvements make it worth it's weight alone.
You guys are retarded. You can already use WebExtensions on Waterfox and current CuckFox. It's not Legacy vs WE. It's WE+Legacy or only WE.

i thought waterfox was supposed to be a 64 bit windows firefox when 64bit windows firefox didn't exist

why does it still exist and whats all this privacy bs

Leo Fisher
Leo Fisher

There is no reason for it to exist. Regular firefox allows you to disable everything you want, is going to be faster since its getting rid of addons that slow it down and replacing it with extensions, and will also be more up to date in terms of security.

I agree, people here just have a built-in Luddite mentality.

No it doesn't, there is telemntry that can't be under the hood. Plus x64 cuckfox only allows flash as a plugin and no unsigned addons.

Alexander Martin

i use waterfox because it has a blue icon

John Ross

No it doesn't, there is telemntry that can't be under the hood.
proof? give me something that cant be disabled or proof that its connecting to unwanted IPs. Anything, something or else you're just spreading FUD

Plus x64 cuckfox only allows flash as a plugin and no unsigned addons.
Hence, security. And fuck you for wanting flash.

Dylan Turner

that can't be disabled with settings on Firefox
Not in the regular settings interface, but everything CAN be disabled in about:config

Install gentoo or install Firefox.

The only mildly interesting trait about Waterfox is that it will maintain support for legacy addons, without being based on an ancient FF version like Pale Moon, otherwise it is complete placebo.

Never. You use Waterfox for the logo, so that you can validate yourself among your anonymous internet peers.

Noah Barnes

What could you possible need from Waterfox or IceCat that Firefox can't already do?
I could see running one Firefox-based and one Chromium-based browser or something…

I'm currently on Firefox ESR because muh addons. Should I switch to this if I want newer features?

Elijah Gutierrez
Elijah Gutierrez

It's gonna lose addon support too. It basically follows stable firefox except with defaults set to disable telemetry. It's a placebo browser.

you don't need an addon to disable WebRTC.
You can even do it with uBlockOrigin if you don't want to mess with about:config
