Even though there are “unofficial” 64 bit versions of Firefox floating around the Internet, none of them have gained any significant attention from the general user base.
Thanks to Waterfox, a highly optimized version of Firefox specifically designed for the Windows x86-64 users, this 64 bit flavor might gain some momentum.
Why is it so special?
First of all, Waterfox is fast as it has no troubles outperforming the 32 bit version of Firefox and there are no compatibility or update issues WaterFox will update itself when there is a new release of Firefox and best of all, the add-ons you have installed will continue to function properly as it uses the same profile as Firefox 32 bit.
Since all major plug-ins are already available in the 64 bit flavor, there is pretty much no reason not to try it out, unless you are not Windows user that is.
