    "NEEDS TO BE IMPROVED"

    February 12, 2016  |   By RoadRunnerUK1

    Version: Waterfox (64-Bit) 34.0.4

    Pros

    It's FAST, uses little power and first impressions was GOOD - then it fell flat

    Cons

    Altered Settings to my personal use - it FAILED to save passwords, FROZE if the webpage had an active video playing (like MSN does), needed a re-boot to activate changes, doesn't have a Favourites Bar (that I could find).

    Summary

    Overall - VERY DISAPPOINTED - I went for it after reading the EDITORS Review, just goes to show - even he can get it wrong!!

    "Used to be great; now garbage"

    January 26, 2016  |   By wombatmatty

    Version: Waterfox (64-Bit) 34.0.4

    Pros

    There aren't any pros anymore.

    Cons

    With each new release of Waterfox, the performance for me goes downhill, even on fresh installs with a fresh operating system. I had this one twenty different machines and I'm now uninstalling them all to use Firefox, which now has a 64 bit version.

    Waterfox used to be fast, that is until the past few versions. It seems like the developer tried getting a little too fancy starting with the charity search (now ended). Each time I open the browser, search settings seem to default (even on fresh installs). Sometimes when searching using the upper right hand search bar takes me to a completely different search engine OR to my search settings. Pressing search again does what it should have done the first time.

    There are way too many crashes and freezes now for my liking. Downloads very often fail for no reason with the inability to restart unless I browse to the link and click it again. It's not a particular website.

    The waterfox process is also staying stuck in memory.

    "Very poor clone"

    January 19, 2016  |   By desertdan1

    Version: Waterfox (64-Bit) 34.0.4

    Pros

    Has none !!!

    Cons

    Uses all Firefox files! If you change settings on one it changes the other?????? and on top of that it uses 3 times the space Firefox does WTH? I know cnet love anything Mozilla but they should step up on this clone and rate it as junk!

    Summary

    Do not install this clone is one of the poorest I have seen!
