Tobin's Take on Waterfox (ESR68)

Post by therube » Fri Apr 19, 2019 2:51 am

Waterfox has Jumped the Shark

It seems that SeaMonkey will be seeing a 2.53 (akin to FF 56) Release (probably).
(2.53 builds are available now, have been available if you want to try.
Really nothing earth shattering compared to 2.49 IMO [which is good actually, if you want consistency].
But it is newer. And if security fixes are backported...)
And then the desire to do something with 2.57 (akin to FF 60 ESR), but if extensions aren't going to work, or if they are webextensions, then it's like, what is the point?

It would be nice to have a decent, usable browser (with extensions).
Well, one can dream.

They did change the incorrect text, this is what it says now - wrote: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.
(changed part highlighted by me)
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
