Default Any real difference between Waterfox and Firefox?

Other than eliminating telemetry, what major differences are there between Firefox and Waterfox "current" edition?

Legacy add-ons can be used.

Even Wikipedia (with WikiWand enabled) can be handy once in a while.

Thank you EldonW.

You're welcome.

With all the Firefox and Chrome forks, it's a jungle out there...
