Is there a Basilisk version?
I tried an earlier build but uninstalled it because it's like the post Australis Firefox in appearance and forgot to check this.

I hadn't seen it! It's very cool. Thanks for reminding me to look!

Just curious to know if it was different.

Yeah, but I'm happy with Palemoon as it is :)
Will try when it is stable.

According to Moonchild, Basilisk is to be considered more or less a beta at all times. However, on my rig it is just as stable as any other browser I've used.

And I'm also happy with Pale Moon. I only use Basilisk as a backup browser, which is very, very, rarely.

"beta" does not mean it's a "crash fest" -- I'd call that an "early alpha" :P
Basilisk is most certainly stable, but not all versions now or in the future necessarily have to be. It is and remains development software that is not as polished and can have issues because of new code.
