I don't think you can still describe Pale Moon as "modified version of Firefox", anymore than you can call a zebra a modified version of a horse. They share a common ancestor, but have grown so far apart the current versions can't even use each others extensions.

AndTheWolf: I'm not sure how to describe this browser outside of it's relationship to Firefox. It looks like Firefox, it supports some Firefox plugins, and the elements on the Technical Details page all reference things that have been added/removed from Firefox.

Pale Moon 28 essentially uses Firefox 52 ESR as a base. Likewise for SeaMonkey 2.49.

Beware the EagleGet botnet:

EagleGet 2.0.4.60 is the last clean version without lum_sdk32.dll / Luminati SDK malware bundled. Even the portable version of the newest EagleGet 2.0.4.70 comes with a malicious .dll file which allows user computers to act as a botnet. A botnet is a number of Internet-connected devices, each of which is running one or more bots. Botnets can be used to perform distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack), steal data, send spam, and allows the attacker to access the device and its connection.

Luminati SDK is a part of the Luminati Network, a company that bundles and monetize legit software with ads.

Your instructions above say "Launch Start Tor Browser.exe and answer a few quick questions about your connection". Those instructions are misleading and confusing. I was stumped for a while until I realized the "Start Tor Browser" file is a shortcut, NOT an executable. Please correct the instructions by removing the text ".exe".

Version 4.5.2 available.

smaragdus on 2015-09-05 03:36

I needed to connect to an onion site and downloaded the latest version (5.0.2) but Australis makes Tor Browser absolutely terrible and unusable- I do not want to install heaps of add-ons just to restore features the Mozilla idiots removed. I had an earlier version of Tor Browser (3.6.0- before the advent of the abominable Australis) but the perpetual blinking of the Tor button urging for update is unbearable and cannot be disabled. It can be removed from the tool-bar but this way one cannot acquire new identities.

WebCacheImageInfo searches for JPEG images with metadata stored inside the cache of your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, SeaMonkey, Pale Moon, Chromium, Google Chrome, Opera, Yandex, Vivaldi) and then displays the list of all images found in the cache.
