Pale Moon Web Browser DOWNLOAD

Pale Moon is a custom-built and speed-optimized Firefox browser. The challenge makes use of contributed Open Source code to create a full-featured, speed optimized browser based mostly on the Firefox browser.

Having seen the benefits on different systems (e.g. Linux) concerning programs being compiled particularly for the capabilities of the machine it’s installed on, it grew to become clear that Windows users have been at a drawback.

Mozilla solely releases windows executables with the most compatibility in thoughts, which means that Firefox is made to run on as many various systems as possible, sacrificing effectivity and speed within the process to be appropriate with, by present requirements, completely historical hardware.

Mozilla doesn’t provide optimized browser packages for Windows. That means you might be dropping speed and effectiveness if you use your browser.

That wants to change. Therefore Pale Moon mission offers custom-built and optimized Firefox browsers for Windows Operating Systems. Make certain to get essentially the most speed and effectiveness out of your browser!

Pale Moon Main options

  • Highly optimized for modern processors
  • 100% Firefox sourced: As secure because the browser has seen years of growth.
  • Support for Firefox extensions (add-ons), themes, and personas
  • Able to make use of present Firefox profiles, bookmarks, and settings with this migration tool
  • Uses barely much less memory due to disabled redundant and optionally available code
  • Significant speed will increase for web page drawing and script processing
  • Support for HTML5 and WebGL (v4)
  • Stability: expertise in fewer browser crashes.
  • Support for SVG and Canvas, and downloadable fonts together with WOFF
  • Support for OOPP (Out-of-process plugin execution)

Users will find a barely more conservative method to modifications within the user interface within the Pale Moon browser. Though very near Firefox, it is (now more clearly so than earlier) a unique product. However, these structure variations don’t stop anybody from configuring their browser interface to precisely the best way they need it to look and work. Including Mozilla Firefox’s default layout if they so want.

Changes in Pale Moon 31.0.0

  • We’re once again accepting the installation of legacy Firefox extensions alongside our own Pale Moon exclusive extensions. As always, please note that using extensions for an old version of a different browser is entirely at your own risk and we obviously cannot and will not provide much (if any) support for their use. Firefox extensions will be indicated with an orange dot in the Add-ons Manager in the browser. This will include the converted extensions for the few of you who are coming from recalled versions with -fxguid suffixes.
  • Implemented “optional chaining” (thanks, FranklinDM!).
  • Implemented setBaseAndExtent for text selections.
  • Implemented queueMicroTask() “pseudo-promise” callbacks.
  • Implemented accepting unit-less values for rootMargin in Intersection observers for web compatibility, making it act more like CSS margin as one would expect.
  • Improvements to CSS grid and flexbox rendering and display following spec changes and improving web compatibility.
  • Improved performance of parallel web workers in JavaScript.
  • Improved display of cursive scripts (on Windows). Goodbye Comic Sans!
  • Updated various in-tree libraries.
  • Added support for extended VPx codec strings in media delivery via MSE (RFC-6381).
  • Fixed a long-time regression where the browser would no longer honor old-style body and iframe body margins when indicated in the HTML tags directly instead of CSS. This improves compatibility with particularly old and/or archived websites.
  • Fixed several crashes and stability issues.
  • Added a licensing screen to the Windows installer to clarify the browser’s licensing. In other installations, you may find this licensing statement in the added license.txt file in the browser installation location.
  • Removed all Google SafeBrowsing/URLClassifier service codes.
  • Restored Mac OS X code and buildability in the platform.
  • Removed the non-standard ArchiveReader DOM API that was only ever a prototype implementation.
  • Removed most of the last vestiges of the invasive Mozilla Telemetry code from the platform. This potentially improves performance on some systems.
  • Removed leftover Electrolysis controls that could sometimes trick parts of the browser into starting in a (very broken) multi-process mode due to some plumbing for it still being present, if users would try to force the issue with preferences. This was a footgun for power users.
  • Removed more Android/Fennec code (on-going effort to clean up our code).
  • Removed the Marionette automated testing framework.
  • Security issues addressed: CVE-2022-29915, CVE-2022-29911, and several issues that do not have a CVE number.
  • UXP Mozilla security patch summary: 4 fixed, 1 DiD, 19 not applicable.

Minimum System Requirements:

  • Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 11
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 or later
  • A processor with SSE2 instruction support
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • At least 200 MB of free (uncompressed) disk space
