Pale Moon Portable 3.6.32

Your web browser is possibly the most used piece of software you have installed. With this in mind, it is important that the program performs as well as possible to ensure that your time online is not a frustrating experience. For many people, Firefox is the browser of choice as it is frequently found to perform significantly faster than Internet Explorer and offers a number of interesting features and options.

Pale Moon is another web browser that is based on the Firefox 3.x engine, but anything deemed unnecessary has been removed with a view to speeding things up as much as possible. By stripping out features that are simply not needed by many people, it has been possible to create a streamlined version of the browser that retains the heart of Firefox, but fewer extras.

Features such as parental controls and accessibility options are all well and good, but they are simply a waste of space and resources if you do not use them. Support for ActiveX and ActiveX scripting have also been removed, helping to not only help create a better optimized browser, but also one that is more secure.

While some Firefox features have been removed in Pale Moon, all of the key features and options are in place. Unless you are working with very old hardware, this optimized browser is well worth checking out, whether you are a current fan of Firefox or not - you're likely to be impressed with the speed you experience.

Note that this is the portable version of Pale Moon 3.
