A friend tried Water Fox (uses FF coding) and was impressed with the rendering speed compared to FF Quantum (ver. 68 -64-bit).
I have installed WaterFox and am using it on a screen that at the moment is not "browsing" but viewing the Explore Bear cams.
I read a few reviews but they were a year or 2 old.
Going to have do do some testing but at the moment it seems pretty decent. And for me solves the double iteration of FF or Chrome.

I used Water Fox for some time, but I finally gave up on it due to numerous issues. In many ways, it's like a beta product.

Thanks, I will withhold judgement; at the moment it seems to be OK.

Hopefully you have better luck with it. Waterfox reminds me of what Firefox used to be like.

Certainly seems faster than Quantum.
