Positive PR, finally! (Add more if you find them)

Forum rules
This General Discussion board is meant for topics that are still relevant to Pale Moon, web browsers, browser tech, 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.

If they don't know how to go through the paces to research subjects then a short course in journalism practices might be a good idea since that will present this kind of researching in easy to digest ways.
I'm afraid that a course in journalism, be it short or with an university degree won't help.
Investigative journalism is not desired and as good as dead. Today's journalists are opinion makers serving the interests of their employers.
Our mainstream media controlling 90% of the market is the best proof for it.

Speaking of Wikipedia. I have the whole thing on Blu-ray M-Disc. I update it every so often and it's my wish to have those discs set inside my coffin.
Be aware, the once promising Wikipedia-project degenerated to just another source for pushing someone's agenda.

I think it's not about IQ or general education, so coming at it from that angle is a bit harsh, but the problem is most people don't know how to do proper research before writing their articles.
Off-topic:
Yes, you are right. You are more right than I was. I wrote that because of the way I felt (angry), but it's true a lot of people can't do proper reasoning. They have what I call an "economic mind". Arguing with such people on a daily basis is what agitates me.

Sorry, this thread seems to have derailed into something about responsible journalism.

Here is a video I ran across the other day on YT, he also just made one on Basilisk that I have yet to view (soon).
Good in depth review imo.

Edit: Actually just noticed this is 8 months old...still a decent review.

Not Pale Moon, but another UXP browser:

Which one?
GNU is a rather large project with many programs under it, you know.

It only works with Hyperbola though, it's not a generic build.

Linking to GNU in this context is the same as linking to Microsoft for Pale Moon just because it happens to run on Windows ;)

https://maddownload.com/internet/browsers/pale-moon/ seems to have a pretty decent opinion of Pale Moon, although it's coming on rather strong with the "it's bare bones and stripped down" statements as if it would be unusable without extensions (which isn't the case), but eh, opinions are opinions ;-)
