Pale Moon Web Browser
« on: April 13, 2016, 02:54:42 PM »
found this un-known (for me) web browser called Pale Moon
It has its own web page : http://linux.palemoon.org/
and repositories for Debian 8
https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home%3Astevenpusser&package=palemoon

just wondering, if anybody tried to download and install this browser in VSIDO and what were your experiences ?

thanks

A couple of us have checked it out - check out the browser comparison thread

downloaded and installed from repo for jessie 8 by adding to repos, and use apt-get install
it was only a 22.8 mb download, it is half of the size of a less capable midori
plays YouTube videos, used it to pay online bills @mybank
so far it looks  very good to me
thanks for your reply

I'm trying it these days too. It looks and feels quite familiar... or should I say like an old Firefox? (It forked from kinda FF 25 and still looks like that at first sight). It feels fast, capable and launches way faster than the current fox with much less extra fancy stuff I don't want. Plays videos in html5 ROOTB unlike FF. I'm not worried about the size in the HD, it's clearly smaller, but the RAM usage is also noticeable lower. Overall I'm liking it.

Some FF addons don't work in Palemoon, but there are equivalents and alternatives. I'm only missing "Open With". I'm trying to figure out a way to launch other apps from guerilla scripting (A kind of Grease Monkey). mainly to use mpv and fully avoid flash and also the html5 players that never seem to perform so good.
