Waterfox 56 Release - tarekma7 - 04-16-2018

Waterfox is a 64-bit version of Firefox. The browser's developers modified the Firefox source code specifically for machines running 64-bit versions of Windows.

It is free, open and private.  Inspired by the incredible open source projects that have made the World Wide Web what it is today, we wanted to contribute our part and make a web browser tailored for the power user.

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.
