Cheers mate.

Question when installing I see palemoon and palemoon.bin:

1 aur/arch-palemoon-search 0.1-1 (1)
Palemoon Arch search engines (AUR, Pkgs, BBS, Wiki, etc.)
2 aur/palemoon 25.6.0-1 (32)
Open source web browser based on Firefox focusing on efficiency.
3 aur/palemoon-beta 25.6.0_beta2-1 (4)
Open source web browser based on Firefox focusing on efficiency.
4 aur/palemoon-bin 25.6.0-1 (63)
Open source web browser based on Firefox focusing on efficiency.
5 aur/palemoon-infinality 25.4.1-1 (0)
Open source web browser based on Firefox focusing on efficiency.

What's the difference and which one should I install?

Number 1, adds support for Arch Linux's search engine related stuff. Number 2, and 3 (the third, is related to the beta tags on GitHub) are source-based packages, meaning you compile them from scratch, and it installs the binary that you compiled. Number 4 is the binary package, ergo the '-bin'. I believe that number 4 is the the official binary built by Travis. I recommend you install number 4, since that is what I assume you want.

Thanks for explaining what the packages are. Will do, stick with 4.

You can also use the installer on Arch Linux just as with any distro and it will work (that's how I install PM on my Arch-based Manjaro box).
