What web browser are you guys using? =)

I use Opera, mostly Opera GX for gaming situations. It's good to have something like that.

For work browser, I use one of my country's web browser instead, which is Cốc Cốc ( Vietnamese browser, I know. Coc Coc for english, I suppose) for whenever I want to download videos. I store a bunch of my work sites up there so it's easy to access.

I'm using a browser called Pale Moon, i love the old internet culture so i like to use this browser since it has a 2000-2005 look like, is so beautiful! \o/

Holy shit I didn't know there's someone here also using Pale Moon! If you're using the latest version, you should be able to open this JPEG-XL image ;)

EDIT: Ah, darn, it looks like the forum software just gives out the wrong content-type for these images, which makes the browser always prompt for a download instead of opening them inline...

If you're using WebExtensions you might have to do without some of them. uBlock Origin has a version for Pale Moon, and for Tampermonkey there's Greasemonkey as an alternative. But if a particular extension is not available in an XUL version you can try searching in the add-ons site if there's an alternative that can fill in the same role as your Chrome extension, but otherwise you're probably out of luck.

Another thing missing would be some very recent JavaScript (such as regexp) and CSS features, and WebComponents. These may impact web compatibility. GitHub and Pixiv for example need WebComponents to function properly, and you have to install an extension called Palefill as a workaround. To be fair to the browser's developers, we can't really expect a small team to be able to keep up with the ever-changing web standards, especially when said standards are being pushed by Google which is known to be monopolistic. Even Firefox, which has a large team of developers paid for by Mozilla is having trouble keeping up with the new features sometimes.

On the other hand, with Pale Moon you get superior customization (complete themes are still supported which its sibling Firefox dropped, and you can even combine them with personas or lightweight themes as you can see with my screenshot from my earlier post), more powerful extensions (XUL can modify the browser much more even down to its internals, unlike the very limited WebExtensions used by Chrome and Firefox), NPAPI support (Flash, Java, and other plugins are supported and will stay supported in the far future), and less memory footprint (due to the fact that it doesn't use a multiprocess design which is notoriously resource-intensive).

Just like any other tool, it's up to you to decide which works best for you. I think the trade-offs are worth it, and therefore Pale Moon works best for me, in my opinion. If Chrome works best for you, good for you! I do use another browser temporarily sometimes if I can't workaround a problematic website in Pale Moon.

It appears as a downloadable file for me xd

But is really nice to see that other people here also use Pale Moon =D

I have a low end PC from 2017 and wanted to give it a early 2010s vibe but i noticed that if i downloaded Windows 7 i'd lose some security features and wouldn't be able to play Minecraft Windows 10 Edition xd

But at least there's Pale Moon that gives a really good nostalgia =D

And the best, is fast and easy to use!

Just a chrome user, but I really like the look of pale moon.
Is it missing any features chrome would have? I'm interested in making a switch, but I don't wanna lose any features chrome has.

Well, i'm not a professional in web browsers but i didn't see extensions in Pale Moon so far

Is a fast, beautiful and really good browser when it comes to daily use, i mostly use it to play Roblox with my friends, use the forum and download stuff since it seems faster here

But i also use Edge when i need to use extensions (like VPN to farm microsoft rewards points or use UTorrent since i defined my account on it on Edge, unfortunately =') ), but my main browser is Pale Moon and i use it way more than any other, since it's perfect if you want something beautiful, fast and easy to use

The only configuration you'll have to do will be on the searching mechanics, since it uses as default the DuckDuckGo but you can switch to Yahoo or Google in the configurations

But in general, is so good if you're someone simple looking for a fast and good browser for low end PCs =)
