Pale Moon 24.6.2

Pale Moon

The optimized version of Firefox

Pale Moon is a custom-built and optimized Firefox-based browser for Windows operating systems with current, high performance processors. It looks identical to the standard Firefox browser and supports Firefox extensions, themes and identities.

Features:

  • Highly optimized for modern processors
  • 100% Firefox sourced: As safe as the browser that has seen years of development.
  • Uses slightly less memory because of disabled redundant and optional code
  • Significant speed increases for page drawing and script processing
  • Stability: experience fewer browser crashes.
  • Support for SVG and Canvas, and downloadable fonts including WOFF
  • Support for HTML5 and WebGL (v4+)
  • Support for Firefox extensions (add-ons), themes and personas
  • Support for OOPP (Out-of-process plugin execution)
  • Able to use existing Firefox bookmarks and settings with this migration tool

What's new and fixed in Pale Moon version 24.6.2:

  • Automate rendering back-end selection and use cairo as appropriate.
  • This should fix start-up problems on all types of graphics cards regardless of vendor.
  • Fix font subpixel rendering in menus when on cairo backend (D2D off)
  • Cairo: Prevent falling back to padding when not strictly needed.
  • Performance regression fix if D2D isn't used.
  • Azure: Use correct device offsets.
  • Prevent crashes due to the allocation of source surfaces to errored surfaces
  • This prevents some miscellaneous browser crashes occurring with cairo on azure.
