Pale Moon is a free and open web browser on the layout and rendering engine Goanna. It is optimized for usage on modern processors which includes a number of enhancements over the traditional set of browsers many are used to.
Though Pale Moon used to be heavily based on Mozilla's Firefox, it has since come a long way by developing its in house Goanna layout engine. From what we've seen, it adheres to web standards without a hitch.
With support for themes and layout customization, it's quite possible to have the browser looking the way you want it. Furthermore, several options are available from the Preferences to set different levels of security by blocking addons, password management (protected by a master password), HSTS, HPKP and an optional do not track setting.
Pale Moon supports the W3C Media Source Extensions and playback for MP4 and WebM video can be toggled.
Web Developer Tools are a great set of options for those developing web sites with a Inspector, Web Console, Debugger, Style Editor and more. Additional addons for developers can also be downloaded from Pale Moon's site through the menu system.
Speaking of addons, Pale Moon does a selection of useful and quality addons from their site which can be used for a number of purposes. Take a look and have a browser.
All in all, Pale Moon is a solid web browser that's obviously been developed for not just speed but also stability.
