Waterfox was started back in March 2011 by myself (Alex Kontos), a 16 year old student. I had a fascination for the web and wanted to help expand on the ideals of what Mozilla had for a free and open web. And so I decided to make Waterfox, a browser based on that great software with a focus for removing any sort of data collection or proprietary software!
The browser itself is focused on power users, which lets you make the important decisions. There is no plugin whitelist, you can run whichever extensions you like and absolutely no data or telemetry is sent back to Mozilla, the Waterfox project or any installation trackers!
After a lot of late nights ☕️, the next version of Waterfox is here!
▹ Removed Google Play Services
▹ Removed Pocket integration
▹ Disabled telemetry and data collection
▹ Removed as many app permissions as possible without compromising functionality
▹ Tracking Protection enabled by default
▹ Reduce amount of fingerprinting available with patches from Tor Browser.
▹ Note: Canvas fingerprinting is still possible, but other methods should show "dummy" results.
