Re: waterfox

Yes I have been using it as my default browser ever since Firefox started being difficult

I particularly like the inbuilt reader function which strips links and ads out - control alt and r.

There are only a couple of issues.

For me in some edit boxes I get a very verbose feedback with the whole string being announced every time I type a character. This tends to be some google edit boxes but not all of them for some reason.

The other main issue is  that for some reason some sites like Amazon insists on occasionally interpreting Waterfox as a mobile device. This restricts access to buying Kindle books and sometimes one click ordering. Again this is not consistent. In these circumstances I simply copy the url from Waterfox to chrome to complete the transaction if I am having difficulties in Waterfox.

Hi, everyone,


I just downloaded waterfox and checked out the weather forcast for my area using the braille weather underground site and waterfox is amazingly fast! I think I'll really like using it.
