Fancy a change from your normal web browser, such as Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge? Installing multiple web browsers on Windows is a perfectly natural thing to do, and many people use more than one. And because most of them are free, you can just download any that you like.
If you've never heard of Pale Moon, then you're not alone. I'd never heard of it until a few days ago, but I've been using it recently and it's quite good. Very good, in fact. It's fast, very customizable, and is compatible with many (but not all) Firefox extensions. That's because it's actually based on the Firefox code, but that was way back in version 1 before the developers spent a long time making it work the way they wanted.
The latest version is 27.7.2 (see, I told you it wasn't new) and was released yesterday. You can download it from www.palemoon.org and the installer is around 1 MB, although it'll then download a further 32 MB when you run it. From my tests, both the installer and the additional downloads are malware-free and safe to use.
If you're still using Internet Explorer (which is now pretty much out of date) or Microsoft Edge (which I personally think is awful), give Pale Moon a try and see what you think. If you don't like it, at least you can use it to download yet another browser to try.
