Otherwise PM4XP is your best bet as it does not hold a bias to the Atom Processor.

PM4XP is exactly comparable to Main-Line Pale Moon.

Thanks for the clarifications, and this is exactly what I have been doing so far on that particular PC, and working fine in the default compatibility mode.

BTW, would the Atom build also be the best choice (vs regular Main-Line Pale Moon) for later Netbooks, containing an Atom CPU and running Windows 7 'Starter Edition' ?

If it's a lower resource machine with an Intel Atom™ processor in it, then yes, the Atom build will be your best choice.
Basically, Netbook+Atom -> Atom version (regardless of OS)

Super - Thanks - I'll spread the word about that point.

Update worked perfectly! Thank you again!

One small detail: would it be possible to update the version information in the palemoon.exe details to match the release version?

I use SUMo (http://www.kcsoftwares.com/?sumo) to manually check for updates for all programs and although I'm using Palemoon 25.0.2 but it is reporting that I still have 25.0.0

Can you fix this?

No. The Microsoft style version information in the binary is dictated by the codebase and building process. I will not change it.

In the future, don't bump posts like that.

I was quite happy with this, but found several sites scripts just didn't work with it (deviantArt submissions, gamasutra article submission).
These all worked fine with PM 24 and work fine with firefox-
Cheers,

Later tonight. I have to rebuild the binaries to correct a compilation error. Stay tuned.

Thanks. And sorry if I came off as impatient—I'm not. Just was curious is all. :)

Updated; working great so far, thanks. :)

One question - I noticed that when updating PM4XP through the internal updater, the full installer (~24MB) always gets downloaded, whereas the main-line version seems to download what appears to be an incremental update (~1MB). It's a minor thing, obviously, but I was wondering why it is the case, and whether something prevents PM4XP from using the same incremental update method.

Incremental Updates are a pain to generate. Since this is a contrib build, has relatively low usership compared to main-line, and I have no bandwidth restrictions on the Binary Outcast server I saw little point in generating incremental mar files for the time being. All is as it should be but thanks for the question and noticing! :thumbup:

Works like a charm :thumbup:
Perhaps the xp build could get a more prominent forum place together with the Mac ect. versions, instead of deeply hidden in the 5'th row ?

Off-topic:
Tobin: Do you actually believe in a future for ReactOS, or is it simply because the PM4XP by nature works on this OS?

Point 1: Maybe.. it will depend on the specific activity re: PM4XP gets.. Right now I am not that bothered about it being in 3rd party contrib. (which this board was my idea anyway :P)

Off-topic:
Point 2: Yes.
