    Does anyone use this browser, & if so, what are its advantages over Firefox (if any)?

    I tested it out and the differences are so slight it's not worth bothering with, why because only one person manages this project. So who would you rather use a browser by a team of developers or one person? Point is he'll never be able to do what Firefox does, just make supposed changes to improve, at least that's the hype.

    I used Pale Moon and I really did not see any differences in speed and less memory consumption, in fact the exact opposite, Firefox used less ram then Pale Moon while I was testing them both on YouTube.

    If you HONESTLY want a fast and light browser and you can do without all the bells and whistles, nothing can beat K-Meleon, hands down it's the lightest and fastest!

    If you want speed and the goodies use Opera 10.

    As a long time user of Opera and Kmeleon, I think chromium is faster in all respects. It pained me to come to that conclusion after resisting for quite some time, but I simply cannot deny it. It might use more ram, but it is fast.

    I used to use Opera a lot, I don't have it on my desktop now. K-Meleon was another I used to use a lot, it was ahead of its time in many respects. I actually have Chrome as my default browser, although in my opinion it is not as fast as SRWare Iron & for some reason seems to take its time in Yahoo! Mail. I have noticed this on more than one computer, so it isn't a 'platform' thing. If I was suspicious I'd wonder if the Yahoo!/Microsoft deal thingy had something to do with that. It doesn't seem to affect Iron particularly. Luckily I'm not suspicious. ;)

    I tried it some months ago, but at that time I kept getting error messages because of KeyScrambler Free (an add-on type program I use with FF and IE), so I uninstalled PaleMoon.
