You'd think these excerpts described Pale Moon, but they are actually about Google Chrome.

I couldn't agree more! IMO Pale Moon should be on top of this list, I'm thinking the author of this piece ranked them by market share (maybe some dosh too?) , rather than just it's overall usability and security, which for me Pale Moon is #1 on the list.

Being a new Pale Moon user...I don't want to sound too overzealous, but I reelly freakin love my new browser Pale Moon :D
And I want to say Thank You Moonchild for all your hard work, and all the other folks involved in the Pale moon project for "every ones benefit"

I rarely post in the forum because I have absolutely Zero issues/problems so I just had to for this one.

Unfortunately, it will continue to be "herd mentality" for the most part that will continue to contribute to market share and in turn will be what keeps Google Chrome at, or near, the top of any browser list. :(

If people want, I can stop being helpful, if that satisfies the conditions of what people expect from this forum.

No, you are helpful when people ask questions that haven't already been addressed elsewhere. Same with everyone else here and on the whole it is a closeknit and helpful community.

Yep -- seems odd. :crazy: The 1st comment posted accurately states "Netscape has been dead since 2008". :eh:

,,, just noticed that Basilisk is listed under "Newcomers" (but not yet ranked).....

I am very curious about these polls.
Where and how are these polls conducted and by whom.?

Is it the opinion of one person or people for whom we do not know.
Don't know about anyone else but i for one was never asked to vote on such a poll.

I don't think they hold much credibility and seem to be based on usage share and analytics from "other" polls perhaps.

I think it is bullshit clickbate that doesn't refect a damn thing. Just trying to capture ad revenue with search terms. It is also perpetual and partly based on user content with a history at LEAST back to 2013. See: https://web.archive.org/web/*/https://www.thetoptens.com/best-web-browsers/

Making it and this thread.. Entirely pointless.

An argument can be made that nothing's entirely pointless if Pale Moon gets positive browser ranking exposure (which is always nice to see!).... ;) :thumbup:

If someone is dumb enough to use that site in their decision making then I don't think they will like Pale Moon or any of the UXP applications. It is of neutral benefit at MOST.

Sites dedicated to "top ten lists" only exist because they keep regurgitating existing content with fresh ads (and sometimes juggling the order or listed entries) on different domain names. They are also often guilty of SEO spamming fora, social media and mailing lists, but have no actual value beyond flat entertainment.

An enterprise that should necessarily believe its venture to be both worthwhile and competitive should welcome any kind of exposure. :think: :idea:

Really? Would you as a serious business owner like to have your company printed in a tabloid next to Elvis and aliens-ate-my-baby?

Of course not -- but in this case Pale Moon is in the company of ONLY other browsers (many very well known I would add). ;)

Clearly the exposure simply CANNOT hurt!!!
