Reviews for this release

     
Waterfox is a browser I have used for quite some time and in that time it has progressively gotten better and better. This release, v32, has been the culmination of a lot of work on Mr Alex's part and that dedication shows in the astounding performance of this browser. To me, it is much more than just a fork of the Mozilla Firefox build, but something that shows how good Firefox can be in the right hands. Looking forward to the Mac OS release, which I understand is coming soon.
