Thanks for all the work and for your explanations. You correctly tried to be "unreasonable" (see citation) but this time the lazy website designers won.Moonchild wrote:Announcements->Change in approach for Pale Moon web identification

I am mainly a lurker in this forum. I did the transition to Pale Moon (Linux) because of the Australis nightmare, and have been making propaganda for PM since then in my signature. I did the transition with PM 24 because that's happened to be there when I did it. I prize interface stability, and am not one of those guys who go after the latest update, and use very few addons. The postings about PM 25 have so far kept me away from trying it.
But I have a question. Would there be a way to download a version of Pale Moon and run it "nearly in parallel" with an older version so one can do a live assessment of the interface without interfering with the profile of the older one ?
This is the sort of thing I usually do when (every 4 years more or less) I change machine and OS version. In this case it is easy because I keep both machines on for a while, generate some local test accounts on the new machine where I test the UI of various components (e.g. window manager or browser) both in native mode, and importing my preferences.
What I did last February when I moved from the very old Firefox version bundled with my OS to the latest pro-tempore (fortunately still 28 at the time) was not the same but equivalent. I did the firefox download not as root but under my individual account, so I had two executables with two different paths. I could just backup the profiles and run one at a time to compare.
In general (for packages which have make and make install, I often skip make install and keep stuff I only use under my individual account).
Is there any way to download PM onto a Linux system as e.g. a tarball which is not installed, but which one can extract and run "in place" delaying installation until one is contented ?
