Why settle for a basic build of your Firefox browser on Windows Operating Systems when you can have one that is specifically made for getting the most out of your system? Mozilla does not provide optimized browser packages for Windows, meaning you may be losing speed and efficiency when you use your browser; and truth be told, most people use their browsers all the time! That needs to change, so, here is the Pale Moon project: A custom-built and optimized Firefox-based browser for Windows. Make sure to get the most speed and efficiency out of your browser.

Of course, getting a more efficient browser is not just about optimizing the compilation process (building a program from its source code), but also about carefully choosing features and knowing how to choose the best setup. This means that this browser, however extremely close to Firefox in the way it works, does not have all the functions that Firefox has. A few, carefully selected, features have been disabled that are not in high demand, and that do not interfere with the way web pages are displayed or function; all to maximize speed and efficiency of the browser.

Update of the underlying Firefox (gecko) code to version 19. This has a number of consequences:
o Add-ons and themes may need to be updated since the UI code has changed.
o HTML5-implementation is more complete.
o A number of CSS statements have their prefix removed (-moz).
o Javascript now uses the IonMonkey engine by default, which is a new (faster) engine.
o Improvements to the layout and rendering engines.
o If you are using a language pack, you need to update it to the new version.
Update of the browser style. Main browser controls and the padlock look slightly different.
Several Pale Moon specific improvements to the rendering engine, noticeable in general use and certain benchmarks, to prevent browser stalls or high CPU usage on certain pages.
The builds no longer use PGO (Profile Guided Optimization) but are globally speed-optimized.
