I thought I should quit Pale Moon and UXP but when I encounter the screenshot of this software I immediately fell in love with it appearance. I think I will be on this forums for a bit longer.

It won't be easy for you. Borealis while having more advanced inbox configuration will lack a lot of existing extensions. Since it is a standalone Navigator and I have made a lot of changes SeaMonkey extensions simply aren't a good idea. But we will see. Perhaps we have gotten through to you on some level. Perhaps not. But I think you should get another chance to find out where you belong. But only one more.

We shall see.

Sadly only 64bit.
I would certainly have jumped onboard if 32bit.
Until i get a 64bit machine i shall plod on with 32bit for now.

Since the source code isn't public anymore, can someone say if any progress has been made since the last time there was an update post here?

The updates are appreciated! They let us know that the alpha/beta version will be followed up by a more-capable general release.

You've been so intrigued and patient. Send me your platform details (OS and if applicable gtk version) by PM or report to my channel. Preferably both.

Curious, but compared to palemoon, how much cpu usage is there?

I am interested in knowing heh.

Performance is roughly the same across all UXP applications provided they are doing the same thing.

Do not compare my navigator to their mess please. I have made more changes in the past two years to clean it up than they have in 8 save for mozilla rabid release bustages.

ShellService needs finished then I suppose I could release unstables but it won't have an add-ons site yet.

@daemonspudsguy - some of these are on the Pale Moon addons site, so if you get a Borealis build you can install them from there.
