Basilisk is excellent browser.

It only consumes 500 MB memory although I open 10 tabs & would shutdown very fast - only takes 2 seconds in my observation using Process Hacker.

There is a slight difference on the rendered fonts on certain websites. Pale Moon rendered the fonts much sharper. Good news it's still much more readable compared to that blurry monstrosity when I tried Waterfox a few months ago, even after I disabled Hardware Acceleration & Direct2d. I assumed Firefox had the same problem with Waterfox.

....but starts awfully slow (it takes between 15 to 25 seconds with 7 addons and no tabs loading). However it is just the first beta release so we shall see what the near future brings.

I find that it starts, opens Startpage and is fully useable in about 4 - 5 seconds.
Withe PM and Bk open together, RAM useage is about 600MB before opening several tabs and spending some time browsing. Vivaldi and Fx 57 take about 700MB each just on opening!

Having only about 1.8GB to 'play' with if nothing else is open, I don't open them both at once!
