We had dedicated much energy in the past, 2 years ago, to advocate for Palemoon and you should at least read the piece about the NoScript parody, and how we gave up on it for specific suspicious reasons (still holds unchanged, Palemoon has branded NoScript as “dangerous” because it breaks pages). We had seeked refuge at Waterfox, retaining some old firefox functionality and ensuring us it is blocking all of Mozilla tactics of robbing you of private data and feeding it to “who knows who”.
Waterfox officially was sold by mr Alex Kontos to System1, a UK payperclick ad company, which it would be absurd to believe that it wouldn’t utilize the browser’s ability to feed their other interests with private data. Or why else would they buy to promote their own browser, to make all others break while they are getting robbed?
Thank you Alex for your sincere efforts and sleepless nights of coding, all these years, it has been a great ride, and it is too bad it had to crash in such a bad time for browser variety and period. Goodbye and good luck for all that you had done up to now.
All new Palemoon 27.9.1 is out (stardate: 20180507)
Did we or did we NOT say that this space is for users, by users, and it would be nobody’s puppet? WE DID SAY IT! So no developer/s will coerce this here pen to write supportive statements when they don’t deserve it, we have nothing to gain but everything to lose if we start playing these games.
In LIGHT of this intrusion into our systems’ security Palemoon has decided to utilize its plug-in update check (which runs at every start and can possibly be disabled in about:config) to pass a script that will disable a security feature. That makes palemoon “malicious” in our book! It is using an acceptable and known feature to do something else!
Read the comments below and those on palemoon’s forum (those that were not blocked by the emperor palemoon himself that is). We will do research on what is at stake but from this moment we consider palemoon a problem, or at least not a solution.
We shall return where there is more light thrown into the subject and hopefully we are wrong, because we have relied on palemoon for most of our browsing and editing this blog. Continue reading
