Could you care to explain how pale moon is outdated.?


PaleMoon is based on a now rather crusty version of Firefox from two years ago. It's apparently maintained with security patches and some new features. However, since Firefox has a whole new UI and a new customization scheme, extensions designed for new versions of Firefox should not be expected to work with PM. Also, the PM developers have done modifications that mean that even extensions designed for that old version of Firefox won't work in PM out of the box either.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Also as of PM 26.0 it is using a new layout rendering engine Goanna instead of Gecko.

Which is as far as I can tell just a fork of Gecko 24 with new features shoe-horned into it.
