    The last build:

    Win 64:

    https://o.rthost.cf/palemoon/palemoon-28.0.0b2.win64-git-20180714-1862bf7a3-xpmod.7z

    Copy the file to the programs folder and then extract it.

    The developer of the XP version is Roytam1:

    https://msfn.org/board/topic/177125-my-build-of-new-moon-temp-name-aka-pale-moon-for-xp/?page=41

    To install some extensions you need to make a change in about: config.

    Not even the developer can say it with certainty.
    To improve you need to risk and it is often worth it.

    Pale Moon v28.0.0 Released (2018-08-16)
    Release Notes
    Download
    Many thousands of things have changed since the v27 (AKA "Tycho") versions, which can't possibly all be listed here. Instead, the most pertinent improvements in this new release are highlighted here:
    • SpiderMonkey update: The JavaScript engine has received a major upgrade and now supports all landmark features from the ECMAScript standards as carried by mainstream browsers. This should put an end to the increasing JavaScript issues we've seen due to web frameworks not being browser-agnostic in that respect, or the browser not supporting what websites expect.
    • Goanna update: The layout and rendering engine (Goanna) has been updated to its 4th generation (version 4.*) which brings with it improved compatibility with "trendy" CSS styling techniques that build on a few very specific features (e.g. CSS Grid). Goanna continues to build on tried-and-tested software fallbacks in case hardware acceleration can't be used, and Linux remote desktop users can continue to leverage xrender for speedy remote screen updates in Pale Moon.
    • DOM enhancements: Enhancements in the Document Object Model provides websites with updated APIs to perform their tasks. (e.g. Fetch, WebAnimations, WebCrypto, HTML Input Element Extensions, etc.)
    • Media enhancements: Our media back-end update is, for all intents and purposes, complete. MSE media streaming (for MP4) should be compatible with all major players on the market now. MSE for WebM is still disabled by default due to some compatibility issues that need to be examined, but you may enable this in preferences to e.g. allow 4k video playback on some sites that only offer UHD in WebM format. We now also support playback of FLAC-encoded audio.
    • New: WebGL2 support! Pale Moon now supports the WebGL2 standard for enhanced graphical experiences in 2D and 3D.
    • Devtools have been given a refresh. Just in case you thought they weren't extensive enough yet, some new categories have been added to inspect and manipulate all aspects of web content.
    • Updates to the login manager: Login credentials can now be stored specifically with or without a user name, and selected individually. This is a behavior change from previous, and clicking a password field can now pop-up a selection list of user names for which passwords are stored (if multiple credentials are saved). Clicking the appropriate login name (or date-stamped version if no name is present) will fill in the accompanying password.
    What might be more important for people worrying about upgrading to this milestone is what hasn't changed.
    • We continue to support NPAPI plugins.
    • We continue to support complete themes as well as lightweight themes.
    • We continue to offer a fully customizable interface like before. Australis (like seen in Basilisk) is not used.
    • We continue to support XUL overlay, bootstrapped and (deprecated) Jetpack extensions (collectively called "legacy extensions" by Mozilla).
    • We do not include any DRM in the browser (people needing this can use e.g. the Silverlight plugin to play protected content), even though the platform we build on supports it.
    Our primary goal has been to lift Pale Moon up to the new platform and as such most changes are "under the hood" and won't be seen in casual use (aside from more things "just working"). We aim to keep your user experience consistent and logical; but some things will have changed, of course. Browser extensions may need updating or may need a different version, for example.

    I fell off the Palemoon wagon for Vilvaldi for one. The updates sort of threw things out of balance for me.

    How do you guys like and feel about Palemoon, not by comparison with any others, but performance and security add-ons compatibility?

    PM 28.0 portable runs smooth as silk for me. The only add-on I use that didn't work with 28 was DTA, but I resolved it using instructions in the thread at DSL Reports (download v 3.0.8, unzip, change install.rdf Firefox min. ver. to 27.0). https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r32085676-

    @mood ,

    I did try it earlier and noticed that accessing websites was a bit slow. Reverted to an earlier image.

    Pale Moon v28.2.0 Released
    2018-11-13
    • Fixed a major performance issue with web workers.
    • Fixed a rare crash on local networks with HTTP basic auth and unsupported cipher suites.
    • Fixed a performance/timer issue when leaving the browser idle.
    • Fixed an issue causing an empty dialog when launching executable files from the browser.
    • Fixed an issue preventing making entries to disallow sites to store data for off-line use.
    • Removed code to prevent extensions with binary components.
    • Fixed an issue with common dialogs being sized incorrectly for their content.
    • Fixed an issue with event handling on the tab bar that would cause frustrating behavior when trying to open/close tabs in rapid succession.
    • Switched default behavior for scrolling when a context or pop-up menu is open to allow scrolling, like in v27. This also affects scrolling in very long menus, e.g. bookmarks.
    • Added experimental Asynchronous Panning and Zooming (APZ) for desktop use.
    • Re-enabled the use and parsing of ICC v4 color profiles.
    • Removed telemetry code from the caching subsystem.
    • Improved full-screen detection for suppressing status messages.
    • Made all arguments passed to Init*Event() optional except the first for parity with other browsers.
    • Cleaned up some internal installer code.
    • Fixed making caret width configurable when dealing with CJK characters (regression).
    • Fixed drawing of table borders consistently when zooming a page (regression).
    • Exposed the "Save download location per site" pref in about:config.
    • Improved media handling (ongoing).
    • Added experimental support for AV1 in WebM videos (disabled by default).
      Note: this is for WebM only for now, so MP4 and MSE AV1 streams (e.g. YouTube) will not (yet) play.
    • Removed the (defunct and incomplete) in-browser translation code.
    • Fixed an issue with CSS Grid layouts unnecessarily shrinking element blocks.
    • Fixed notification settings menu entry (opes about:permissions with relevant data now).
    • Fixed the launching of an undesirable background content process for capturing page thumbnails.
    • Fixed a focus issue in the bookmark properties dialog.
    • Changed the setting for reporting CSS errors to the console to false by default, to prevent unnecessary performance loss for recording this data.
    • Added control mechanisms for Opportunistic Encryption (both for alternative services and upgrade-insecure-requests) in preferences, and disabled this by default due to potential security and privacy issues with this transitional technology.
    • Updated the default reported Firefox version in Firefox Compatibility Mode to prevent "too old Firefox" complaints on websites.
    • Updated libnestegg, ffvpx, reader view components and several other modules from upstream.
    • Implemented security fixes for CVE-2018-12381, CVE-2017-7797, a better fix for CVE-2018-12386 (DiD), CVE-2018-12401 (DiD), CVE-2018-12398, CVE-2018-12392, several Skia bugs, and several crashes and memory safety hazards that do not have a CVE number.

    It was indeed a bit slow. Let's see how this works out.

    Under Pale Moon Preferences > Security tab there is 2 settings for Opportunistic Encryption.

    Enable Upgrade Insecure Requests
    Enable HTTP Alternative Services for OE

    On Pale Moon support page it states:
    These options are transitional technology and aren't particularly secure in themselves, and
    as such are not recommended to be used.
    Enabling these options may expose you to more ways of being tracked, so this is a
    privacy concern as well.

    NOTE: Mentioned in hayc59 post #144 in the Pale Moon release notes.
