Browsers: Firefox vs Pale Moon

I cannot see any real differences between Firefox and Pale Moon browsers. Speed and layout are very similar - are there hidden advantages one has over the other?

Pale Moon is an open source Firefox derivative, and despite the claims made for it with regard to faster page loading, tests have tended to produce mixed results - many people feel that FireFox is actually a better performer.

Your computer's processor type can make a difference however, so the only real way to find out about Pale Moon is to download it and give it a try.

Thanks FE, I have already got both running side-by-side and can see very little difference between the two. I was just wondering what I have missed!
