If waterfox64 wouldn't be so FAT (ram footprint) it would be a good idea.

FF30 with classic theme restorer is doing the trick to avoid the ugly Australis UI/theme.

Probably because Waterfox is 64 bit....versus 32 bit. On my computers the Waterfox is definitely faster in all areas.

Hopefully Microsoft will finally kill 32 bit OSs in Windows 9. It's sad that a decade after 64 bit processors were released, software is still 32 bit by large in the non professional market...

Yes, Waterfox definitely is a bit faster but do I need that for what I do? nope!

Kill 32bit OS? There is still DOS working out there (NASA) .. not going to happen   and the 32bit market share is way too high for that - do that for Win9 and no 32bit user can migrate to Win9 (depending on software compatibility in use)... MS was a fool once (NSA backdoors) and they won't take another donkey-hat like that.
