Waterfox is a fast browser that uses the 64-bit architecture and is graphically similar to FireFox.
Waterfox was reviewed by Mihaela Olteanu

Waterfox was launched in March 2011 by a 16-year-old student (Alex Kontos), and is a web browser, a version of Firefox that takes full advantage of computers running 64-bit operating systems optimized for speed and high performance.

Waterfox was one of the first browsers distributed over 64 bits and quickly gained popularity. A major 64-bit advantage is obviously allowing you to access more than 3.5GB of RAM, helping to accelerate your computer.

When it comes to graphic layout, besides its name in the main menu, Waterfox looks and works like Firefox, including the various customizable features and options. All Firefox add-ons will work with Waterfox, but only 64-bit plug-ins that currently include Adobe Flash, Oracle Java, and Microsoft Silverlight are supported.

It is important to know that Waterfox significantly shares Firefox settings, so you should uninstall it, but do not select the option to delete your personal information if you still use Firefox.

Finally, Waterfox is a good browser, but not the fastest, and if you use Firefox on a 64-bit system, it would be much better to try Waterfox.

Features
* No Telemetry - Waterfox does not collect ANY telemetry, meaning you don't have to worry about any tracking or usage information about what you do inside YOUR browser.

* Limited Data Collection - The only thing that Waterfox sends back is your OS and browser version to check for updates.

* Bootstrapped add-ons - Waterfox is one of the few fully customizable browsers, allowing you to modify and extend it any way you please. You'll even find some of your favourite classic XPCOM add-ons ported over such as DownThemAll!, Greasemonkey and the like.

* Support for NPAPI Plugins - They should be used responsibly, but Waterfox still supports the use of Java and Silverlight plugins, as well as any other 64-Bit NPAPI plugins.
