I tried a previous version of this and was not impressed. I used to use Waterfox, but got tired of running into websites that wouldn’t load properly. When it worked, Waterfox was pretty fast, though I couldn’t appreciate a significant different in speed between it and the 32 bit Firefox.

I’ve been using Pale Moon and have no complaints at all. Good to see they are keeping up with security updates.

I think the word “fork” would be more accurate than “clone”, since Pale Moon is a modified version of Firefox. Anyway, I once tried it and didn’t find any speed improvements, although I was using a fairly slow CPU. I guess I’ll try on a faster system and see how it goes.

I use Waterfox on a fast system but haven’t noticed any appreciable difference in speed, maybe I’ll give Pale Moon a try.
