« on: October 13, 2010, 02:41:36 PM »

Pale Moon is faster than Firefox and, their migration tool
let's you import all your Firefox preferences and settings in a flash.

Give it a try, you might like it as much as I do.  :)

I like it a lot. I usually use Chrome because it runs faster, but this version of FF seems to be about the same.

My only gripe with firefox was the fact that it took like 5x longer to start up than other browsers (especially chrome) and the annoying addons popup.

Maybe this will get me on the firefox bandwagon finally.

I've substituted Pale Moon for Firefox but still prefer Chrome for my default browser.  :)

Well Pale Moon never even rose on my system, so it is history in a little under 5 minutes. Whilst it installed OK, the migration tool was a total failure and there is no way I'm going through all the firefox customisations and add-ons manually.

For me both the install and the migration tool worked flawlessly on 3 Windows 7 32 bit computers.

Why are there so many typos today???

Anyways, I would still rather use Firefox than Pale Moon because Firefox is awesome. Plus, did they get permission to use part of Firefox's code and why is it outdated? ???

Well, the current version of Pale Moon (3.6.9) doesn't fully support my processor (AMD 64 XP), but I'll check back later when v.4 is released.
