New Pale Moon

  1. #11

    To migrate your Firefox profile to Pale Moon on Windows, including bookmarks, passwords, browsing history, extensions, etc., you may like to know you can USE THIS TOOL. Pale Moon uses its own profile location and does not automatically import Firefox profiles.

    It got them automatically from FF. I did not have to use the TOOL. I will give Pale Moon a try anyhow.

    I like it a lot. Reminds me of the old Netscape Navigator that i absolutely loved. Is is a touch smoother than FF, appears to me it is.

    Okay, well there is at least a 64-bit option. And this is probably as good a time as any to mention I forgot to add one potential benefit to a 64-bit browser is security. Windows 8, the 64-bit version at least, supports RAM address randomization. Without getting into the weeds, it makes it harder to overwrite a specific program's memory in a way that lets someone alter the program's behavior... Sort of like the old Game Shark and what not for game consoles. So if the program is written to utilize that function on an OS that supports it, it's one more layer of security.

    Since I have only played with Pale Moon I had not looked for a 64bit version and it does not seem to be well advertized.
    I did find it on their site but the write up puts me off. It may not be an ideal browser for most people.

    Nothing to worry about. Just the normal caveats that come with 64-bit browsing (like plugin compatibility.). However Flash and Java are 64-bit capable now. No different than 64-bit Internet Explorer.
