Spread the love

Version G:3.1.0 of the third generation of Waterfox has been released. Waterfox is a web browser based on the source code of Firefox. The project was started in 2011 by the then sixteen-year-old Alex Kontos and was one of the first 64-bit browsers on the market. There are two versions of the browser available. Waterfox G3 is based on Firefox ESR78 with various optimizations, has no plug-in whitelist and does not send telemetry to Mozilla or Waterfox. The changelog for this release looks like this:


  • Migrated from Bing Translation API v2 to v3. You can manually add a key to enable this feature in about:config.
  • Fixed issues including language options when building Waterfox. This feature is still under testing.
  • Fixed issue with Profile Imports. You can now import from Firefox and Waterfox Classic once again!


  • Updated to Gecko 78.7 (includes security patches)
  • Add initial support for the Chrome Web Store and Opera Web Store. Improvements still to be made, but the first step to full support has now landed.
  • You can refresh your Waterfox profile in about:support. Useful if Waterfox is running slow or broken on websites.
