Alternatives to Mozilla Firefox for Android with Open Source License

  • Waterfox

    Waterfox is a high performance browser based on the Mozilla platform. Made specifically for 64-bit systems, Waterfox has one thing in mind: speed.

    • Waterfox is made for x64 (amd64) CPUs, and it also delivers you a fine service concerning privacy, firstly devs removed telemetry and tracking implented recently in Firefox. Secondly it supports old extensions and pocket was removed AkinoJun 2017 • 14 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It depends what you want from a Firefox alternative. Waterfox is essentially identical to Firefox, except that it's a 64-bit, not a 32-bit browser. It's still open source and fully compatible with all options, extensions and everything else. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 13 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is completely compatible with every feature present in Firefox, so you don't lose *anything* when migrating, and win privacy, speed and security. Guest • Oct 2017 • 6 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Great 64-bit alternative, it's lighting-fast & ditches the telemetry. Guest • Aug 2017 • 7 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Uses almost all the original code of firefox but keeps the "undesired" NPAPI that firefox dropped, another words user retains ability to change the browser's UI & behaviour Guest • Nov 2017 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Waterfox is so far the closest to modern Firefox, but with better privacy, and a commitment to maintain XUL/XPCOM support indefinitely so that I can keep using a modern theme with square tabs, centred bookmarks and of course the add-on bar. birdNov 2017 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • So far this is the BEST replacement I have found for FireFox 57 (which is just a Chrome clone at this point) Guest • Nov 2017 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Open source fork of Firefox with a few privacy settings (not not all) changed by default. Guest • May 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The option to accept or dent cookies... Guest • Oct 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • Currently (March 2017), Brave is not a mature project. It's an open-source privacy-oriented browser and very fast. But you rely on the developers to provide most of the privacy settings, and you can't install extensions. Firefox remains much more customizable via it's about:config menu options.

    • It's really really nice and fast, but is still in very early development and lacking a lot of features Guest • Apr 2017 • 7 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Built-in ad-blocker, free and open-source. Guest • Feb 2018 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Read my review. Brave is Firefox baby with more privacy and clear interface AkinoJun 2017 • 2 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
