Why settle for a basic build of your Firefox browser on Windows and GNU/Linux operating systems when you can have one that is specifically made for getting the most out of your system? Mozilla does not provide optimized browser packages for Windows, meaning you may be losing speed and efficiency when you use your browser; and truth be told, most people use their browsers all the time! That needs to change, so, here is the Pale Moon project: Custom-built and optimized Firefox browsers for Windows and GNU/Linux operating systems. Make sure to get the most speed and efficiency out of your browser! More Info »

I've liked Pale Moon as many users here for basically being Firefox before being ruined by strange UI decisions, bloatware and the like.

But after the latest update to Pale Moon (v.26) it is obvious that sloppy coding is becoming a tradition which only increases in importance in making this browser. A lot of websites are simply broken and plenty of basic add-ons lag or downright break the browser.

Most importantly, the official feedback is bordering on Stalinism: although many users considered that v.26 is not yet ready to be considered stable, the veterans and developers said, faced with all the failures and discontent, that it "had to be done", that it is "a major improvement" (in what, they don't say: can't really consider number of broken websites and addons an improvement) and that we - regular users - had to beta test, otherwise we're not allowed to offer feedback.

Well, those who keep using it will have a lot of beta testing to do. I for one chose another stable browser which to my surprise had all the alternatives to the add-ons that kept me chained to Palemoon.


Firefox BEFORE it was ruined!

Firefox was the amazing alternative to Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Safari because it used less ram and had killer addons you could add to it! Time passed and it became very bloated, slow, and frustrating. That's why a group came together and made Pale Moon, the newest and best web browser alternative of today! They have a dedicated team making working on it every week and best of all, it's compatable with most of Firefox's addons!


A great alternative for Firefox

Positive Comment by MarcelSepu about Pale Moon Also mentioning: Mozilla Firefox Google Chrome Opera Jan 2011

Pale Moon is a great alternative for Firefox: all addons work, it's faster and consumes less RAM than Firefox.

I recommend it, if FF is becoming difficult to use, test and you won't have to change to Opera or Chrome. Long live Firefox.
