Pale Moon browser = any good?

Looking into other browsers because of upcoming DRM/Firefox, I haven't really found any good honest reviews of Pale Moon, so not quite sure what to think of it yet. Is it worth it to install and use in place of FF?

Re: Pale Moon browser = any good?

Thanks for the quick rundown, Alad.  I did use Iceweasel when I first installed #! several months ago. However, it seemed to run extremely slowly for me at times on various web pages (can't remember exactly what or where).  I believe I upgraded it, but don't remember for certain. Considering the path FF is taking I might give Iceweasel another try. Midori seems to work okay for me most of the time, and actually I've been falling back on it more and more. I use the basic repo version, and it runs stable enough but noticeably slower than FF.  I really enjoyed Opera when I tried it, but alas no new Linux releases seem to be forthcoming.  Oh, well. . . .

Re: Pale Moon browser = any good?

I believe it was Pale Moon that I used under Windows for awhile.  I went back to Firefox because I didn't see much of a difference and they didn't seem to put out updates very quickly.

For what it's worth, I've read about the reasons Firefox is implementing DRM technology in the browser.  I think you're being a bit hard on them.  If they don't implement DRM, then the browser will not work on a lot of sites that will work on Chrome and possibly others (Internet Explorer, Safari?); i.e., they'll lose users.

I've been trying qupzilla since I "upgraded" to Iceweasel 29. I'll probably stick with it when I find out how to get flash playing OK!

^Me too, at least as second browser. Flash is playing fine here though without any intervention (on Unstable). 1.6.3 was crashing but since the upgrade to 1.6.6 yesterday it seems more stable.
