Sorry to break up the current convo; BTW, I've been using this theme for quite some time before I decided to just accept that I'm using windows NT with a facelift ...Just went back to using the classic theme and I've saved memory as an addend bonus.
I WILL continued to use Pale Moon for as long as possible up and until its grossly outdated. It gets the job done quickly and effortlessly. Besides, it was searching for a alternative browser to FF on XP that led me to using Pale Moon in the first place.
Currently, I'm testing out the following browser now..
Slimjet - so far so good, but its hardly a slimmed down version of Chromium. Haven't had a problem yet, so I will likely stick with it now.
CLIQZ - So far so good with this one as well with XP (but a awful resource hog, so to me, not an ideal alternative, and I'm unsure of the development team which leaves me feeling powerless.
Avant - Good on this one with no real complaints other than it feels not quite as secure sometimes, but uses only a small amount of resources on the plus side.
Iron Browser - Seems good, but being that it listed on reputable sites/forums as "scare-ware" gives me a less than a warm and fuzzy TBH. Might just avoid it really.
As time goes by, its going to be slim pickings finding browsers for our cherished and antiquated OS that we've come to love. Honestly, I have no plans to ever upgrade this PS and will just keep it "as as" and take it offline eventually. I have so many memories and and I've developed an emotional attachment to is LOLOL!! I skipped over windows 7 altogether up until you could not buy it off the shelf at a retail store. Windows 8 was nothing I had any interest in so I didn't bother with it. Now here we (I) am faced with my biggest phobia ...CHANGE :-O. But I suppose I should (at some point) come up from under my rock and see what real world is up to these days. Yes, I admit, I still drive my old car because I hate the ides of these new computerized cars, but all good things must come to an end; as they say. I've been testing out a few new notebooks that are reasonably priced and will make my decision within the end of the month. so far, the ACER had a clumsy keyboard and the ASUS feels cheap and if dropped, that would be it. I'm liking the HP so far. This will be the first new things I've bought myself in ages. I'm not happy with the busy, distracting, outlandish windows 10, that is the only choice buying something new from a retail store here.
As I've said, going to keep my XP pc and plan to be buried with it ha-ha..just a lame attempt a candor. I hope I didn't break any rules by mentioning any brands, if so, please accept and apology in advance.
So it - hello reality, and here's to the way the computer world had evolved into, windows wise. But of course, goodbye - user friendliness, customization, and of course, PRIVACY...Grrrrr!!!
