Just noticed that there is a Palemoon 27.3.0 for Mac. Any thoughts on Palemoon and/or the Mac port?

If you are tolerant of jank and add-ons ecosystem is more important to you than performance, then it makes sense to use PaleMoon.

I have been playing with it and so far fairly good. Was easily able to import my latest bookmarks from Nightly using a html file. Also my userChrome.css tweaks all seem to work (haven't checked them all yet) when I copied the chrome directory form the Nightly profile to the Palemoon profile.

Will post here as I move forward with my testing on Mac.

I've been using Pale Moon on Win7 for quite some time now. I've been able to use most of my add-ons. I had to substitute a few with Pale Moon Extensions, but, in general, I've had no trouble with it and it seems to load a lot faster than FX or SM. I don't care what the critics say, I like Pale Moon.

I have Pale Moon set up to look almost exactly as my FX and SM installations:
