Pale Moon Browser


http://www.palemoon.org/

It is derived from firefox, but there is no version for Linux, strange!

You are suprised by that?

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 Operating Systems. Make sure to get the most speed and efficiency out of your browser!
I dont want a winOS optomised browser for linux.

And also 'optimised' to the point that it doesn't run on an Athlon of some vintage.

They've decided what they want to do with Firefox code base, and they've done it. It doesn't happen to be anything that I'm interested in (and, potentially, not what many LQ people are interested in, for obvious reasons). So my reaction is primarily 'So what, maybe tell me if someone decides to do a Linux(/BSD) optimised version, or an arch-specifc Linux build (and I'm still not sure that this would be something worthwhile, but maybe they have a point with SSE, perhaps) or something'.

I hadnt actually noticed that, nice catch.

Though from what they say on the palemoon site it looks they never supported 'original' athlons, and the athlon XPs only work up to version 3 (and currently pale moon is at version 6). Thats all the 32bit athons.

OP, Please put your threads in the correct forum:

This is Linux - Software
Quote:
Linux - Software This forum is for Software issues.
Having a problem installing a new program? Want to know which application is best for the job? Post your question in this forum.
You knew that this is Windows s/w & should have known to put it in General.

Please be more careful & thoughtful in the future.

Thank you.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in General and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

Debian has iceweasle ... I used it for awhile, But it didn't impress me that much. I'm fine sticking with Firefox and Chrome for fancy extensions/addons and opera or midori for lightweight speed.

Iceweasel is firefox-

Quote:
What is iceweasel?

Iceweasel is a fork [from Firefox] with the following purpose :

1. backporting of security fixes to declared Debian stable version.
2. no inclusion of trademarked Mozilla artwork (because of #1 above)

Beyond that, they will be basically identical.
