Pale Moon offers you a browsing experience in a browser entirely built on its own. This independently-developed source was forked off from Firefox/Mozilla code several years ago, with carefully selected features and optimizations to improve the browser’s stability and user experience while offering full customization and a growing collection of extensions and themes to make the browser truly your own.
Mozilla does not provide optimized browser packages for Windows, meaning you may be losing speed and efficiency when you use your browser, and the truth is told, most people use their browsers all the time! That needs to change, so here is the Pale Moon project: Custom-built and optimized Firefox browsers for Windows Operating Systems. Make sure to get the most speed and efficiency out of your browser!
In addition, this browser, even though fairly close to Gecko-based browsers like Mozilla Firefox and SeaMonkey in the way it works, is based on a different layout engine and offers a different set of features. It aims to adhere to official web standards and specifications in its implementation (with minimal compromise). It purposefully excludes several features to balance general use, performance, and technical advancements on the Web.
