Waterfox is the 64-bit version of Firefox

If you are running a 64-bit machine with 64-bit Windows, you might want to try Waterfox. If you haven’t notice, so far Mozilla only release the 32-bit version of Firefox.
Waterfox code is based on Firefox but has been recompiled to suit under 64-bit environment. This means, it should be able to support the multi-core processing and memory usage beyond 3GB. In short, it should be far better in terms of performance.
In addition to that, most of the plugins such as Flash Player, Java, etc also support 64-bit application. This shall produce a better performance browser. Why Mozilla is yet to release an official 64-bit of Firefox? I’m not sure, maybe they still want to make it better first.

If you are running 64-bit Windows, I fully recommend you to try this. It blends nicely with your Firefox current settings. So if you have addons installed, sync setup, you don’t have to repeat the setting all over again. So good!
