Welcome to the CozyNet Blog!
Pale Moon sisters, are we back!?
So a fren in IRC tried out the recent Pale Moon browser update, version 32.1.0 which has better support for Google webcomponents, and said that it’s finally working again with sites like GitHub. It’s been awhile since I’ve last used Male Poon, and that’s simply because it just stopped working for most sites. After they kicked Toby from the project, it just nose dived from there; but I’d already stopped using it by that point and moved to Brave.
I did some testing with this version and it seems to actually be functional! I’m able to use sites like YouTurd, GitHub, GitLab. Odysee, and Twitch. Preddit as well as various basket weaving forums seem to work too. I’m sure it’ll still run into trouble with online banking and retail sites, but it’s at least graduated from text based browser levels of incompatibility, so conratz Pale Meme!
Here's a demonstration of Pale Moon attempting to load YouTube, before and after:
Scrolling thru a product list on Amazon or Newegg is still pretty rough. Same for scrolling thru a video list on Youtube or Odysee. It really struggles to handle multiple images. I don’t remember it being that bad. I haven’t tried the browser on more corporate-y sites like Azure, Cloud Flare, Teams, Cisco Websex, or Shatpoint. I don’t want to set off any alarms here at work; I’ve been trying to fly under the radar, and running a non-Edge meme browser might bring some unnecessary attention.
So yeah, I think Pale Moon is back in so far as an alright shid poster with some compatibility to finally render modern sites!
Thanks for reading my blog!
