Pale Moon (A Firefox Based Browser) Will Not Adopt The Australis Interface

Filed under
Moz/FF

As you may know, Pale Moon is an open-source, cross-platform browser based on Mozilla Firefox, being up to 25% faster then the original. The latest version available is Pale Moon 24.5.0, which has been recently released, coming with a bunch of optimizations, better support for third party extensions from Mozilla, and some bug-fixes.

I think Geekster is posting

I think Geekster is posting his own assumptions as news. Pale Moon is on the 24.x ESR. He noticed it doesn't have Australis theme so he decided to post that Pale Moon is not adopting it.
Australis was introduced in firefox 29.0 and not 24.x.
The next ESR which is version 31 or 32 or something will have Australis UI.
When PaleMoon moves to the next ESR, they will get Australis UI along with it. If they decide to get rid of it (and I haven't found any news source that says they will do so), they will have to do a lot of work to revert to classic UI.

I'm not a fan of Australis but so far, Geekster provided no sources to his claims that Pale Moon will not be adopting Australis.

Load Android with a few key applications and you can remotely monitor servers and services, get alerts and warnings as they occur, and solve problems without any travel at all. Read more

Windows Phone Shrinks In Android-Dominated Europe, As New iPhones Boost iOS’ Share

Spare a thought for Microsoft, a relative newcomer to the mobile making business, after Redmond completed its $7.2BN+ acquisition of former European mobile making powerhouse Nokia earlier this year. If Microsoft was hoping to see quick marketshare wins in Europe once its hands were fully on the levers of production that has not come to pass. The latest 12-week smartphone sales figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, up to this September, indicate that Windows Phone’s already small share of the smartphone market has shrunk in Europe — dropping 0.3 percentage points in aggregate across the top five markets in Europe (the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany).
