Web Browsers Based on Firefox

For when you need to use a browser powered by the same technology behind Mozilla Firefox, but you don’t want to use Firefox itself, this page will come in handy! While Mozilla Firefox is of course an excellent web browser, other browsers you may not immediately think of, such as Tor, Pale Moon, and Waterfox are also powered by Firefox. These browsers (as well as others forked from Firefox) provide different focuses, such as Tor with private browsing, and Pale Moon with support for legacy Firefox extensions.
