The developers of the PaleMoon browser are thinking of scratching their current code base due to the fact that it doesn't support many of today's current Web standards, and because future Firefox plans will introduce incompatibilities within its code base. The team plans to build a new browser from scratch, which they'll use to replace Pale Moon when it reaches a stable version. As with the old Pale Moon, the browser will keep Firefox's pre-Australis interface and still support many features removed in Firefox, like Tab Groups and full themes.

It's only a matter of time before FF drops plugin support. I know there are Pale Moon fans here, and I think this is some great news.
FF sucks.

Wow, this is good news. It will still be a fork of FF, but that's doable.
It needs to handle HTML5 out of the box a bit better.

FF sucks.

It's not compatible because they refuse to adapt to html5 and insist on using Flash. Those are the main reasons I made the switch to Vivaldi.

Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

i dropped vivaldi due to it being laggy most of the time, but thats on my end. might i suggest giving slimjet a try. even though i have palemoon pc edition, all the other browsers i have are portable versions.
