Waterfox 2020.12

Posted onby
Waterfox for Linux 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 for Linux 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 for Linux looks and works like Firefox, including the various customizable features and options. All Firefox add-ons will work with Waterfox for Linux, 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 for Linux 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 for Linux 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 for Linux.

Thanks for the adoption @hawkeye but with your first update the application icon is broken in Manjaro Gnome. TIA

Please change Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/waterfox-classic-icon.pngIcon=waterfox-classic-icon so themes can change the icon thanks.
