Filed under
Moz/FF

As you may know, Pale Moon is an open-source, cross-platform browser based on Mozilla Firefox, being up to 25% faster then the original. The latest version available is Pale Moon 24.5.0, which has been recently released, coming with a bunch of optimizations, better support for third party extensions from Mozilla, and some bug-fixes.

I think Geekster is posting

I think Geekster is posting his own assumptions as news. Pale Moon is on the 24.x ESR. He noticed it doesn't have Australis theme so he decided to post that Pale Moon is not adopting it.
Australis was introduced in firefox 29.0 and not 24.x.
The next ESR which is version 31 or 32 or something will have Australis UI.
When PaleMoon moves to the next ESR, they will get Australis UI along with it. If they decide to get rid of it (and I haven't found any news source that says they will do so), they will have to do a lot of work to revert to classic UI.

I'm not a fan of Australis but so far, Geekster provided no sources to his claims that Pale Moon will not be adopting Australis.

Mozilla News

  • WebExtensions in Firefox 48
  • Mozilla's WebExtensions API Is In Good Shape For Firefox 48
    Mozilla has announced that for Firefox 48 their WebExtensions API is considered to be in a stable state. They encourage developers looking to develop browser add-ons to begin using this new API. WebExtensions is an API for implementing new browser add-ons/extensions that makes it easier to port to/from other browsers, is compatible with Firefox's Electroloysis, and should be easier to work with than the current APIs. In particular, Google designed portions of the WebExtensions API around Google's Blink extension API.
  • Mozilla a Step Closer to Thunderbird Decision
    The good news is that the folks at Mozilla seem to be determined to find Thunderbird a good home where it will be able to grow and find newfound success. This isn’t surprising. As Surman pointed out in his post, the project is quite popular among those associated with the foundation — but that popularity is also contributing to the problem Mozilla has with keeping the project in-house.
