Version 24.7.1: full changelist here.

From Pale Moon's home page:

Quote:

Pale Moon is an Open Source, Firefox-based web browser available for Microsoft Windows and Linux, focusing on efficiency and ease of use. Make sure to get the most out of your browser!

Pale Moon offers you a browsing experience in a browser completely built from its own source with carefully selected features and optimizations to maximize the browser's speed*, stability and user experience, while maintaining compatibility with thousands of Firefox extensions many have come to love and rely on.

Unfortunately, in the beginning, PM was only available for Windows.
Then it became available for Linux.
And now...this.

GOOD TO KNOW:

A version of Pale Moon recently showed up in Google Play. STAY AWAY FROM IT! It is not legit.
It is likely that either Palechild or I will upload the real thing at some point but in the meantime do not trust anything else in GPlay.

Note: I am Pale Moon's current Linux maintainer as you can verify here.

However, I would like to remind everyone that Moon Child is the person who spends so much time crafting Pale Moon and the work I am doing is negligible in comparison so all kudos should go to him!

THIS BUILD:

Now, there are several things you need to know about this build:

1. It may not work on your device :

I am using flags that are different but somewhat equivalent to Pale Moon's x86 flags: enabling NEON, vectorization, etc.
For instance Cortex-A9 devices may complain whereas Cortex-A8, Cortex-A15 and Krait-300 should be happy

2. See #1

3. See #2

4. Pic:

Feeling adventurous? Get the Alpha build:

Alpha!

I'd try this out but I hate Mega. It makes it a major PITA to download things on mobile.

Seems nice and quick, and also works with Flash player, so that is a bonus.
Personally I would like a way to access my bookmarks, without having to create a new tab. This works the same way as it does in Firefox, and I am not a fan.

Download the mega app from play store. Makes downloads from mega really really easy.

Browser is running wonderfully on S4 i337. Very quick and stable. @cyansmoker do you plan on making it compatible with flash player 11.1?

Thank you for this impressive port.

A 'Pale Moon for Android' public beta has been available for almost a month and is being developed by Moonchild himself. It's available on the official forum.
