Pale Moon is a popular web browser that was derived from Mozilla Firefox and highly optimized. It was designed primarily to speed up Firefox. That’s to say, its running speed is much faster than Firefox, but they do operate exactly the same way. Don’t worry, it also provides a variety of builtin Firefox extensions, in order to make its user interface more beautiful, functions more powerful, and more suitable for beginners to use.

Compared to the original Firefox, Pale Moon comes with more compiler optimizations, making it faster and more efficient, especially when it comes to the aspects of mathematical and logical operations. For example, Pale Moon starts and runs much faster, its trigonometric calculations are 30+ percent faster, the MD5 hash tests are 30+ percent faster too. Even better, Pale Moon can utilize Firefox’s extensions/addons and other resources exactly as Firefox does. In other words, Pale Moon can use any extension resource that Firefox can use.

If you’re a user of Mozilla Firefox, then you’re probably complaining that it starts and runs slower and slower now. In this case, be sure to give Pale Moon a try. Because it removed the components that most users don’t use at all in Firefox, significantly improved Firefox’s HTML5 compatibility, as well as its rendering capabilities for scripts and pages, and added the support for 64-bit processors. As a result, it effectively improved the overall performance of Firefox browser, and reduced its memory usage.
