I've tried these custom firefox builds before and never saw a difference, and in some cases were worse than Firefox...

I tried out Pale Moon just for the heck of it and noticed a drastic improvement in page loading times. It's now my default browser.

Do you use Palemoon 64 or 32?

Pale Moon is a lot better than standard Firefox if you ask me. It doesn't take an eternity to start up and it manages to be a hell of a lot less bloated.

I switched from Firefox to Chrome and finally to Palemoon 64 and never looked back.

Can you switch easily from firefox to moonfox while keeping your settings and such?

I personally couldn't tell a difference between vanilla Firefox and palemoon or waterfox, but it may have something to do with all the plugins I'm using

A 64 bit version was more than enough to make me switch to Waterfox. I haven't bothered looking at the different versions to see if Pale Moon etc are any better.

Now I'm interested. Have you had problems with plugins on x64?
