Use this as a last resort if your topic does not fit in any of the other boards but it still on-topic.
Forum rules
This General Discussion board is meant for topics that are still relevant to Pale Moon, web browsers, browser tech, UXP applications, and related, but don't have a more fitting board available.

Please stick to the relevance of this forum here, which focuses on everything around the Pale Moon project and its user community. "Random" subjects don't belong here, and should be posted in the Off-Topic board.

IonMonkey is really only useful for apps that use Canvas. Most sites never use it and the baseline JIT offers very good speed generally speaking.

Seriously compare your RAM usage with it vs without it and see. Also the time it takes to actually load a page.

Also you should disable WebASM because that will keep clickbait sites from using your PC to mine.

I would just download more ram if IonMonkey ever caused my 32gbs of ram to run out. This board should support up to at least 64gbs. MAYBE 128 but I'd have to likely fuck with updating the firmware. Also, Pale Moon has an easy to access GUI tick box to enable and disable WASM.

I also have it in Borealis that will totally get released this year...

I'm sorry but you are completely misinformed.
IonMonkey will be used by any scripting, although there is a threshold which scripts will be JITed by it in terms of how 'hot" they are that it warrants the compilation investment.
It has nothing to do with canvas.

It offers reasonable speed. Certainly not the levels people have come to expect from JS execution.

If you're worried about WASM being used to mine cryptocurrency, then you should employ a blocklist filter to block crypto sites, not disable the technology overall. But, it's your choice.
