Several people have asked why Pale Moon has not followed the Firefox GUI (Graphical User Interface) layout. This document aims to provide a bit of background to the choices made in Pale Moon and to explain the reasoning behind the differences with Firefox.These layout changes were not done lightly, or without thought. The fact that the end result looks more conservative is not necessarily because Pale Moon is adverse to change, far from it. Rather, the layout is the result of working with the existing elements and attempting to keep things logical, efficient and intuitive. It is also because the design choices in Firefox were considered regression rather than progression, and there being very little that is truly "innovative" about the layout (as that implies good reason for, and a clear and unmistakable advantage of, the new state of things)..........continued
There is no doubt about it that Mozilla has improved the Firefox web browser a lot ever since it switched to the rapid release cycle. I'm referring to performance and web standards improvements first and foremost.There is also no doubt that Mozilla made several questionable decisions in that time as well. The controversial launch of the new Australis interface in Firefox 29, announcement that the organization will integrate Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) into the browser, or that it will display sponsored tiles on the browser's new tab page.Mozilla has been criticized for all three of those decisions and it is likely that at least some users made the switch to another browser as a consequence.One of the alternatives that gets mentioned regularly is Pale Moon. The Firefox spin-off is available for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows and for Linux.It is not just a simple rebuild of Firefox though. This becomes apparent when you try to find the three features Mozilla is criticized for in Pale Moon.The short answer is that they are not part of the browser. The author of Pale Moon confirmed previously that the web browser won't switch the interface to the Australis design but will keep Firefox's original layout and design instead.........continued
I'll have to check it out sometime.
i'm interested in trying this out, is there a .deb file for it?
@ultravioletI found these instructions http://www.itworld.com/article/2696377/open-source-tools/install-pale-moon-24-6-2-browser-in-ubuntu-14-04.htmlI tried to follow similar instructions on my distro for Seamonkey but they didn't work. Hopefully you will fare better.
Which part exactly? You shouldn't copy the version number, but everything else looks good in principle.
Seemed to work fine in the terminal, no errors coming up. But couldnt find it in the start-menu though. And couldnt find it in a program search
