Features that make Waterfox stand out
- No Telemetry
- Waterfox does not collect ANY telemetry, meaning you don't have to worry about any tracking or usage information about what you do inside YOUR browser.
- Limited Data Collection
- The only thing that Waterfox sends back is your OS and browser version to check for updates.
- Bootstrapped add-ons
- 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.
- Support for NPAPI Plugins
- They should be used responsibly, but Waterfox still supports the use of Java and Silverlight plugins, as well as any other 64-Bit NPAPI plugins.
