    I'm going to have to try Pale Moon on my old celeron laptop I use for onsite work.

    u NEED TO LOOK AT HOW YOUR MESSAGE COMES OUT TO OTHERS READING IT. IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR MESSAGE THE WORDS SEPERATE 2 LETTERS AT A TIME. AND THEN RESUMES TO NORMAL AFTER THAT.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    1. DON'T SHOUT!
    2. Really? Which message? I looked at all of the messages in this thread, and don't see that with Firefox.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Sounds neat. Is there a way to localize Palemoon?
    I don't want / don't need the US dictionary, but the British one, so kinda a en_GB version.

    Ever heard of someone localizing Palemoon?

    //Update
    Yes, it does have localization:

    Neato!

    I'm running Iceweasel after discovering that the latest stable version of Chrome dropped third party plugins which made Java obsolete. So far it has minor issues, like trouble displaying street view on the new Google Map.

    Nobody mention Epiphany (reworded to Web) that's the default Gnome browser. It's pretty minimal but lack of a rich set of extensions.

    "Iceweasel" was coined to refer to rebranded versions of Firefox. It should really not be that different from the original FFx...

    I never checked out Epiphany, I wonder if I already have all needed gnome libraries installed, since my Porteus XFCe is a bit slow at times with my one non x86-64 capable laptop I still use...

    For a lightweight. And I mean very lightweight. Browser. That supports Java and Flash.
    I use it on this forum from time to time to stay in practice using it.

    Uzbl - web interface tools which adhere to the unix philosophy.

    Check your local package manager to see if your distro supports it. It is my main backup browser now on every new install. Uses key bindings to operate.
    Supports mouse and right click. I like it better than Netsurf or Midori myself.

    You can have a ton of open windows and ram usage and cpu usage is nil. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, because speed and lightness compromises
    ease of use and function for some point and click surfers. If so. Oh Well. I don't care. I like it.

    I can watch a youtube movie in full screen on my weak a$$ netbook without it gasping for resources to play the movie.
    Plus no special hoop jumping for uzbl to find libflashplayer.so and javascript plugins.

    Edit: I forgot to mention

    Pale Moon forum ? View topic - Looking for a new maintainer

    Maybe by now a new maintainer has stepped up since May. I don't know though. I will keep my older Pale Moon installs on my Puppy Linux installs. A older install don't hurt nothing.
    I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.

    I will look into Uzbl, never heard of that.

    And I compared FFx with Pale Moon on my slower i686 machine, and while the program folder is quite larger than the FFx one, it still gave me an speed and performance boost. For now I am hooked on that Pale Moon...
    Cheers!
