Best Firefox-fork out there, no telemetry & faster than Mozilla's browser.

Waterfox is now owned by System1, an ad / data collection company, so you can bet it has telemetry now. I would avoid it like the plague.

From the release 41 Firefox will start blocking unsigned extensions. Waterfox will keep the possibility to install them, another reason to prefer this software to the original one.

Stay away. Waterfox has been bought by advertising and data analytics firm System1.

I'd leave zero stars if I could.

Waterfox is owned by System1, an ad / data collection company, so I would avoid it like the plague. If you are looking for a hardened / more private version of Firefox, Librewolf is very good, though.

I like this browser. It's fast, lightweight, and favorable for someone with a slow internet connection like me!

You shouldn't use this browser, doesn't have frequent security updates, and eats tons of ram
