Good morning peepels,
guess I’ve told you already about the PaleMoon interwebz browser, right? Oh yes, I have! So this post is just a quick … a quick Not-A-Review but a user report. Review won’t make much sense since operation of PaleMoon is to 99.9% identical to its Firefox grandad.
For me the most important part when adapting to a new browser are two qualifying aspects: Can I take my 3 milion bookmarks with me and does it have the same access to the unbelievably cool Firefox Add-Ons? Yes to both! \o/ HOORAY! \o/ So nothing standing in the way of more privacy and secure surfing now. Importing the bookmarks from external storage was the same as I always do, when installing a new system and went like Swooosh! Ready, done!
I didn’t dive too deep into the wonderful and quirky – and slightly OCD – world of browser add-ons. There are add-ons available for every quirk and every whim you can think of. Orca loves to keep her shit fairly tight so she never installed more than the absolute necessity. Unlike hubby, who’s an almost paranoid security and privacy fanatic and can close up his computer all nuke-proof like. I don’t even know what all his add-ons are doing technically but I know if he wants to watch a simple YT video he first needs to switch off like 3 dozen of his security gimmicks. And when he reads my blog it looks like totally naked on his laptop, like a page of code rather than the lucky bag it’s supposed to be.
Fortunately PaleMoon is by nature already much more secure than Mozilla’s Firefox so many of the couple add-ons I’m usually running aren’t even available and/or just not needed in PaleMoon. And some, like my beloved YouTubeHD aren’t working at all. 😦 But after the very little time I’m on this new browser I’ve not much bad to say about it.
You should really try it. It’s cool, man.
“Aha – an urbanite… You probably think we’re a little old-fashioned up here, but beware … it’s cool man!”
You still on Windows? Yes, shame on you. But at least you can gain the advantages of a politically correct browser since PaleMoon is also available for Windblows.
