    Changes are too numerous to mention here, that's why above link.

    Updating went without a hitch although I had to adjust several things such as fonts (like what happened in a previous version of Firefox).

    You're welcome wolfrun. Pale Moon 24.0 is a lot snappier now for me as well as for others who posted in PM's forum.

    Probably for the best. I was thinking about going ESR or Pale Moon anyway since I think Firefox is about to lose a bunch of users. The trend of dumbing down computing is going to take me to Linux at some point. Unfortunately I don't know that it will solve the browser problem since most distros use Firefox. :doubt:

    Well, let's hope Palemoon really can go that Non Australis Road.

    In the Beginning i was quite Sure it will make it, but then Cyberfox Guys have not been able to restore Keyword.Url because of the changes Mozilla made.

    If you think about, if something "rather simple" like that feature is already impossible... Well, that kicks down the Hopes of an Australis Chrome free Fork, no matter if it is Palemoon or Cyberfox. If it's not possible i for my own part see then no reason in using them anymore, would make no difference then to Mozilla's Firefox anymore at such a point. In that case i would rather use the Original Open Source Chromium... When Australis will also hit the Modded Browsers i would rather use an original which started it in the first place instead of Mozilla's clone Features.....

    But i guess it is way too early to say that 100%. Until it is 100% clear i will stay away from any Gecko related Browsers. Btw. Palemoon or Cyberfox are sadly not available for Linux :( If that case Seamonkey or how it is called under Linux would be the only way but it seems Seamonkey will go also sooner or later the Firefox road. Seems they also have already removed Keyword.Url from the Browser. Guess Australis and the before upcoming more complex customization reductions are in such a way added by Mozilla that you can not get rid of it the easy way that stuff will stay functional in the end.... At least i have not seen or heard of anything different then that!

    I guess the most easy way would be for the makers of the forks to ask if they can modify the new upcoming Add-on which will restore removed Customization Features in such a way that it can be put into the Browser's Core code, and then.. depending if they want to give their Users the Choice either deactivating the Add-On's feature switching choices for a "No Australis Fork" (Palemoon road) or letting the add-on switch on/off features intact for letting the users "a choice" (Cyberfox Road). Difference would be that that "add-on" would be free of breaking from Fork Release to Release, compared to the more "insecure Firefox way" where often Stuff breaks or goes defunct from Release to Release.

    And that makes the difference why i am would be willing to use a Fork, even under such circumstances (not really able to prevent Australis, but hiding it), depending the case if they ever would come that way instead of using the normal Mozilla Firefox!

    But that is all only wishful thinking, let's wait and see what is upcoming!

    I've generally ignored Firefox, or any derivatives of it.

    I prefer the Chromium engine (Chromium Proper, or Opera19). However I gave this one another shot today, and it's absolutely FAST AS HELL in the 64-Bit variant, under Windows 8.1 64-Bit pro. Like, faster than it has ever been.

    Only change I needed to make was to improve scroll line count to match Chromium variants..

    mousewheel.min_line_scroll_amount;25

    It defaults to 5, which feels like molassas when scrolling.. 20-30 are more like chromium variants. Nevertheless, this thing is SPEEDY.. Looks like I have a new toy to play with.
