Yes…Its true…Waterfox is currently the fastest 64-bit browser till date. If you don’t trust me then just try it out. Waterfox was started back in March 2011 by Alex Kontos, a then 16 year old student. He had a fascination for the web and wanted to help expand on the ideals of what Mozilla had for a free and open web. And so he made Waterfox, a 64-Bit browser based on Mozilla’s free and open source platform. Waterfox is a high performance browser based on the Mozilla platform. Made specifically for 64-Bit systems, Waterfox has one thing in mind: speed.

Waterfox is built with built with Intel’s C++ compiler which accounts for it being so fast. Intel’s C++ compiler is one of the most powerful compilers out there.This enables us to make the fastest possible web browser for all the code changes we make.This potent combination makes for an unparalleled browsing experience. Waterfox is a web browser that is based on Firefox, and, for the most part, it is the same when it comes down to looks and features but the speed stands out.
