Eclipse r3dfox, a modern Firefox based web browser for Windows 7!

r3dfox or r3dactedfox is a fork of release branch Mozilla Firefox made for Windows 7 and 8. r3dfox also comes with limited compatibility for Windows XP using the One Core API and Windows Vista using the extended kernel. The main goal is to be similar to stock Firefox while providing Windows 7 compatibility as a fork point. However there are also some additional tweaks and adjustments.
