Important note:
The Mac OSX version of Pale Moon is still very much in development. Your assistance in bringing this build to fruition is greatly appreciated, but you can expect there to be bugs and problems for a while yet!

Any specific bugs you find that don't have their own topic yet: please make a new topic; one bug per topic please to keep things organized.

Please also note that these builds are currently created by Sugis and Moonchild will likely not be able to provide insight or assistance due to lack of Mac hardware and OS/build knowledge for Mac.

Meltdown and Spectre mitigation on OS X Pale Moon builds

Postby verdant » Fri, 05 Jan 2018, 13:26

I am presuming that the OS X Pale Moon builds by Sugis do/will mirror the Meltdown and Spectre mitigations in the official Pale Moon browser versions including 27.7....since an Apple software update for OS X versions older than El Capitan (OS X 10.11) is likely to be wishful thinking....... :thumbdown:

Of course the mitigations (already in place) for Spectre in Pale Moon apply to all platforms. This is not living in any architecture or operating system specific code.
