Anyone Use Pale Moon?

I use Chrome as my main browser & have done for some time & I feel it has evolved into a stable fast browser that is perhaps for me the best.

I was looking on a software site I frequent yesterday & was intrigued by a (jumped up I thought) Mozilla based browser called 'Pale Moon'.

Just out of interest & mostly because I am an incurable fiddler & despite my brain saying leave well alone I decided to try PM. I also wanted to see if the posters high opinions who I respect regarding this modified Firefox were viable or not & why.

I was and still are very, very impressed with this Firefox lookalike, it seems to sort all the issues as to why Firefox is not on this PC despite many tries.

I might even keep Pale Moon on as the more I use it the more I like it, & although it is Firefox based it does not behave like Firefox 9.xx, even with the many tweaks I have tried.

If you use Windows & like Firefox I think you will love Pale Moon, if you love Chrome you might even like PM.

Thanks for this link. I have just downloaded it. Initial response is very favourable.

I've been using it for a couple of weeks, on and off.

It certainly seems to be pretty good so far in it's overall performance. I haven't read anything yet as regards it's security.

Shows promise.

I've been using it all day & it's had some hammer, for me it's far better than the same version of FF I tried out a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks for replies :-)

PaleMoon distinguished itself by causing Norton to flag a high-risk malicious file warning (suspicious.cloud.7.F) in the file download and then refusing to run.

I'll give it a miss for now,and take a closer look when I have more time.
