  • XUL Layout has been removed from Firefox
    The Palemoon browser [0] also still uses XUL, and is in many ways a continuation of XUL browsers (was originally forked from FF 29, updated with various components from FF 50+, and with many other tweaks). [0] - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • All computers are garbage!
    The Pale Moon browser strikes a pretty good balance, IMO. They forked it from Firefox 24 and focused development narrowly on fixing Firefox's massive backlog of bugs and keeping up with core web standards. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Browser sync—what are the risks of turning it on?
    Or use a browser that unlike Chromezilla browsers just uses a local encryption key for sync that's your responsibility to not forget, so even if their sync server is hacked no one can read your synced data. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Firefox DYING is TERRIBLE for the Web
    Check it out: Source: about 2 years ago
  • Pre configured setting for Firefox privacy, security, anti-fingerprinting.
    Or use Pale Moon, which is an updated, independent fork of Firefox without the retarded changes brought in after Australis (haters repeating ignorant lies that it is oLd aNd iNsEcUrE and who demonstrably have no clue what a software fork means can go sit on a cactus). Source: about 3 years ago
  • What browser do you use now / think is best overall in terms of usability & privacy?
    Pale Moon, and to the Mozilla shills that show up to downvote this, here's an advance birdie flip. You can also save your parroting the usual bullshit about 'old and insecure'. Source: over 3 years ago
