      Mozilla Firefox vs Waterfox opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Mozilla Firefox is a great alternative to Waterfox.
      Firefox got better with performance improvement. But still no translation engine built-in and in compact able sites are my only concern with it. Memory footprint is almost the same on 64bit version.

      henryhunt382 I would love to get Brave, but the only reason I will not let this thing on my computer, is because of the fact it is apart of the Chromium Project. However, I'm not gonna make this a negative comment because it is actually very fast, and is a decent browser

      This alternative is disputed. Google Chrome is still a legitimate alternative to Waterfox, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      henryhunt382 Google Chrome is a decent browser at first, but it is also extremely bad because it innvades your privacy, Takes away your Memory and RAM, and in some cases will sell your data, so please don't use google chrome.
