optimized Firefox browser Pale Moon is a Firefox clone that has been optimized for for Windows Operating Systems with current, high performance processors. It looks identical to the standard Firefox browser and supports Firefox extensions, themes and identities. All your existing extensions, bookmarks and settings are imported during the installation, so, except for the logo, you won`t notice any difference in functionality. What you may notice however is a difference in speed due to the optimized code which will results in faster scripting and page rendering as well as (slightly) lower memory consumptions. Pale Moon is based on the Firefox source and offers the same levels of security. It supports most Firefox features with the exception of accessibility features and parental control features which have been disabled for performance reasons. Copyright Snapfiles.com

Formerly excellent, now frustrating to use 3 stars by Harlan Oct 24, 2014 (Read all my 47 reviews)
Pale Moon was an optimized version of Firefox, eliminating some features most people did not use in return for better performance and stability. As Mozilla lurched from one misguided design decision to another, breaking extensions and frustrating users, Pale Moon kept its traditional, highly functional interface. Any web site and extension that worked with Firefox could be counted on to work with Pale Moon. Over the past two years, though, more and more web sites and extensions have refused to work with Pale Moon. With version 25, Pale Moon has deliberately made itself incompatible with many more sites and extensions (and with Windows XP), and it demands that all of the developers and users in the world make themselves compatible with Pale Moon. Well, it is not going to happen. Firefox itself is steadily losing market share, and Pale Moon is a tiny part of the Firefox user base. With version 25's quantum leap in incompatibility, Pale Moon has gone from "niche" to "cult" status. If you are looking for a new browser, look elsewhere. There are several well-reviewed FF and Chrome clones out there that provide the advantages that Pale Moon formerly did. showShow review details
Good browser 5 stars by danielson Oct 24, 2014 (Read all my 5 reviews)
Much faster than Firefox while keeping its old familiar GUI. Version 25 and up were a definite break from Mozilla based browser. Freedom comes at a price (a few broken addons) but the Palemoon forum along with the dev and participating users are making this transition time less painful as possible. Something Mozilla overlooked when jumping to Australis (causing numerous add-on devs to abandon ship). showShow review details
Not as good as it used to be 2 stars by bat758 Oct 19, 2014
Pale Moon 25.0.1 Browser used to be very good. A lot of extensions and add ons that used to work with it are broken. Hopefully that will be resolved. And quite a few sites don't recognize Pale Moon. Tested this on 35 computers. The earlier versions of Pale Moon were quite excellent. Sad that the developer is going in this direction. Will wait and see. showShow review details
