Pale Moon 24.5.0

O. James Samson - April 28, 2014

One of the attractions for people looking for a program is the little space it takes on their systems. What this means is that it is no use installing a program that drags or slows down your system, and that is why you need to learn more about Pale Moon.

Pale Moon is the work of a single individual, using contributed Open Source code to create a full-featured, speed optimized version of the popular Firefox browser. Having seen the advantages on other systems (e.g. Linux) with regards to programs being compiled specifically for the capabilities of the machine it is installed on, it became obviously clear that Windows users were at a disadvantage.

Mozilla only releases windows executables with maximum compatibility in mind, which means that Firefox is made to run on as many different systems as possible, thereby sacrificing efficiency and speed in the process to be compatible with, by current standards, absolutely ancient hardware.

The interface is familiar and easy to work with. Pale Moon supports multiple tabs and hotkeys similar to Firefox, and allows you to import bookmarks from other sources (e.g. IE) if you want to keep all your passwords and list of visited URLs.

Any downside?

The browser is a bit slow when starting it, but generally it is worth all the effort.
