Do you see an advantage in Pale Moon/Cyberfox/etc vs Firefox?

I haven't tried the other versions, but if the new FF does not meet my needs, I'll give them a try.

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.

switched from firefox to chrome, page load times were much improved so I never bothered with pale moon (at least not for a long time)

Cyberfox is definitely my favorite of the 64 bit Firefox versions.

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


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


Nope, at least not the ones I use. The main ones are...
AdBlock Plus
NoScript
Ghostery
Greasemonkey (all scripts work fine)
Flash
Tab Groups
Text-to-Image
Web of Trust

All work with no problems

On my old 2005 Dell Inspiron laptop, the speed increase was huge, but on my desktop with considerably better specs, there isn't really a noticeable difference.

I still prefer Pale Moon though, since they don't incorporate most of Firefox's asinine design “improvements”.

I tried Pale Moon on an older computer, had to remove it due to memory leaks. Firefox ran much better.

Well thanks to this thread Pale Moon x64 is now my default browser. Pages load much faster and there's a lot less bloat and every single extension is evidently compatible, so I'm sold. Feels more like what Firefox used to be before they decided double digit version numbers mattered more than being fast and stable.
