What's new in Pale Moon

Version 28.9.2:
  • This is a minor update for stability and compatibility.
  • Re-based the 28.9 version of browsers on a separate development branch that excludes the extensive work being done for Google WebComponents, to avoid potential performance and stability issues caused by as-of-yet incomplete and in-progress code for the new milestone.
  • Enabled DOM High Resolution timestamps for compatibility with websites that strictly rely on them for operation.
  • Added a preference to allow copying the unescaped URL from the address bar (especially useful for internationalized domain names and paths).
  • To enable this, set browser.urlbar.decodeURLsOnCopy to true in about:config
  • Fixed several application crashes

Can't rate it because not able to keep it from crashing when attempting to important HTML Bookmark file from (Chrome). Long time Mac user/tech. Performed all the checks I know, (believe me), no luck. Will keep at it when I have more time to waste.
