Waterfox, web browser compatible with old mac os

I am seeing the message from Youtube that it will not be compatible with old browsers very soon. I have a MacBook pro with 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, so I cannot install new browsers anymore. I have tested compatible browsers like ArticFox, but I also see the same message: very soon I would not be able to watch Youtube on any browser.
What to do? I cannot and want not update my old MacBook pro. Well I also have a linux laptop but all files and configuration are for now on this old chap. I updated the hard disk to a ssd one and it works like a charm. I hate throwing away things that work well so I am keeping this old Mac. I am a rebel I will keep it as long as I can.
I am glad to tell you that I have found a nice browser and installed it with no problems. It is Waterfox based on Mozilla, I also have imported settings and configurations from Firefox with no problem.  They also promise that no telemetry is collected and no sending back data and there are also versions for old Windows and Linux platforms. And it is very fast and light. So here it is:

Just download it and browse!
