Pale Moon Reviews

Best alternative I found for Firefox...

After FF's UI turned into a Chrome clone (I hate the Chrome's GUI, not my style at all) this is the browser to use, if you're looking for a browser that doesn't look like Chrome and functions like Firefox. Nothing bad to say about this, all addons work and there's also a x64 version available.


A great alternative for Firefox

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.

I used to use Netscape since Fall of 1998... I moved to Mozilla suite, then Phoneix/Firefox, eventually Waterfox. Unfortunately, Waterfox has become unusable memory/CPU hog and it's time to say good-bye to it :-( Pale Moon fills the niche for me (although, it does not work with every website that I need to visit). I'm playing with Vivaldi and Otter too.

Like good old Firefox when FF was young, simple and elegant.

Not worth it after the latest milestone update

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.
