    Could be used as alternative. On empty tab, FF uses 5 processes. On 5 open tabs FF uses 11 processes with 20% more memory usage an almost 50% more CPU time, compared to PM. Both rely heavily on add-ons, FF have higher add-on base. Since PM no longer support Mozilla add-ons there was some functionality loss (some fixed, some pending, some dropped), FF users can still use those add-ons.

    I just love this browser from the bottom of my heart. Its a Jon von Tetzchner initiative (CEO of Vivaldi Technologies, founder and CEO of the Opera Project back in time). For some people it is just too much customisation. But fact is it is your choice to use the features or disable it...

    Google Chrome vs Pale Moon opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Google Chrome is still a legitimate alternative to Pale Moon, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Not an alternative at all. Only common thing is, they are both browsers. Similarity ends there.

    Google Chrome is more secure than Pale Moon, due to it being more updated. Pale Moon is based off extremely outdated Firefox code, which can be prone to security issues.

    This alternative is disputed. Opera is still a legitimate alternative to Pale Moon, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Opera only has a (suspicious) built-in VPN and adblocker, with little to no customisability.

    Could be used as alternative. Waterfox is very similar to Firefox, but it works exclusively on x64 systems. Uses same add-ons. It also used 5 processes on single empty tab and 11 on 5 opened. PM always use single process. It used slightly less CPU time then PM, but significantly more memory (almost double.

  9. Rebuilt from the ground up using Chromium, the new Microsoft Edge brings you world-class compatibility and performance, the security and privacy you deserve, and new features designed to bring you the best of the web.

    Microsoft Edge vs Pale Moon opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    Not an alternative. Not a single advantage. I consider it malware. Microsoft claims that Edge is necessary for Windows to function, it is not. Removed it multiple times without issues, except that it comes back every time. Also, tends to hijack file, browser and protocol association. Pale Moon upgrades are optional, meaning that if there is an issue an upgrade could be skipped.
