I'm liking the vague, totally useless, changelog that will help absolutely no one!
Well, at least information for security fixes are included that is useful to know compared to Firefox.
But agree for some other short points of the changelog or other stuff what are mentioned again and again for every next release of Waterfox 🤷‍♂️
