Waterfox is a 64-Bit version of Firefox. The Firefox source code is taken and compiled to run specifically for 64-Bit Windows computers. To make Waterfox stand out a bit more, it's compiled with optimizations so that it will run more efficiently and faster than just compiling Firefox as a 64-Bit program.

    I've been using this since Firefox announced that only web extension addons will work in the very near future. That means that the one thing that made Firefox stand out, CUSTOMIZATION, will soon be a thing of the past as about 80% of your addons will not work with the new Firefox (AKA Clone of Google Chrome.)

    Waterfox imported all of my bookmarks, addons etc and is working flawlessly. Cyberfox you say? Cyberfox developers have announced they are going to throw in the towel when Firefox drops support fpr XUL / X{COM. Thanks to the Waterfox developer. I'm sure it will be picking up a LOT of users in the near future.

    Since Firefox has a 64 bit version, that makes this pretty much useless And I agree. since trying Cyberfox, I havent look back.

    It is easier to remove the bloatware from Waterfox that comes bundled with Firefox, however the last version of Waterfox had a major memory leak. Perhaps this version is better. Also, there should be a way to migrate bookmarks between browsers.
