Waterfox 40


Recommended Posts


A Waterfox a Firefox 64 bites alternatívája, melyet nem a Mozilla fejleszt, hanem egy független csoport. A Waterfox ugyanazt a felhasználói profilt használja, mint a Firefox, tehát emiatt párhuzamosan nem futtathatók. A Firefox minden kiegészítője kompatibilis vele. Windows-on kívül van Mac OS -es változata is. Ha valaki nem szeretné telepíteni, akkor Portable változatban is elérhető.


Itt egy cikk róla, mely a PC World újságírója publikált.


Hivatalos oldal, amin letölthető az aktuális 33.0.2-es verzió.


Ugyanitt letölthető hozzá a magyar nyelvi fájl is.


A magyarítás menete: Miután letöltöttük és telepítettük a magyar nyelvi csomagot, a böngészőben nyissuk meg az about:config oldalt, majd a general.useragent.locate opciót módosítsuk hu-HU-ra és indítsuk újra a böngészőt.



Akit érdekelnének a régebbi verziók, itt megtalálja őket.
