Introducing AquaWeb and AquaVid, two all-in-one adaptions of the Firefox Partitioned Engine Patch built into separate FoxBoxes in order to bring maximum browsing efficiency to OS X Tiger / Leopard.

Couple that with the power of TenFourFox, and everything culminates in both a fast minimalist web browser and a sufficiently capable YouTube player for video playback on higher-end machines and audio-only use on lower-end machines.

TenFourFox 45+ is required; Quartz Extreme graphics are recommended.

Installing the TenFourFox MP4 Enabler is suggested for optimal audio / video playback.

AquaWeb and AquaVid have received their final update 1.6. and as of now have been officially discontinued in favor of PowerUOC.

The browsers' innards have been completely redesigned in accordance with an upcoming version of foxPEP for smoother, faster, and more stable operation, while bringing other smaller changes.

Merry Christmas.

The AquaBrowsers have returned new and improved, in the form of 1.4.1!

Numerous tweaks have been backported from the unreleased PowerUOC v2, among all the prior adjustments from 1.4.

Enjoy.

I'd like having that browser but it looks that is not anymore available to download here?

AquaWeb and AquaVid have been updated to version 1.4, this likely being their last update.

AquaWeb's browsing and rendering speeds have been improved, while AquaVid now streams videos noticeably smoother, thanks to a new YouTube front-end.

Added a universal adaption of the combined AquaWeb prefs file that (should) work across all platforms running Firefox 45, potentially even Firefox 52.

Just replace your current prefs.js file and enjoy the speed.

That's pretty cool. Definitely giving this a try!

The AquaWeb/Vid prefs are completely self-contained, separate from the system TFF.

They coexist nicely.

I have a question: will all the optimization settings of these TFF boxes interfere/overwrite the settings of TFF installation itself? Or can multiple settings coexist?
