"Of special interest is that Pale Moon, unlike Mozilla Firefox in its version 12, does not move to a silent install method"

"Another reason is that from this point on, Firefox will receive a few user interface overhauls to go off on the "Web OS"/"Metro"/"Desktop integration" tangent that goes against Pale Moon's goals of being and remaining a web browser."

horay! that's why i like pale moon 64-bit over waterfox and regular firefox.

i like Pale Moon x64 over Waterfox due to it's better memory use which is more inline with official Firefox builds where as Waterfox the memory use inflates fairly quickly and higher than it should be.

but i guess in general Pale Moon seems to be more of a customized browser as it's got it's own profile data etc where as Waterfox just uses the Firefox profile and is pretty much the same but with 64bit support.
