This is a new browser from the makers of Palemoon. Looks good but too
early for me to expand more. Basilisk.
Support for all NPAPI plugins (Unity, Silverlight, Flash, Java,
authentication plugins, etc.).
Support for XUL/Overlay Mozilla-style extensions.
Experimental support for WebExtensions (in gecko-target mode).
Please note that some Mozilla-specific WebExtension APIs are not yet
Support for ALSA on Linux.
Support for WebAssembly (WASM).
Support for advanced Graphite font shaping features.
Support for modern web cryptography: up to TLS 1.3, modern ciphers,
Important differences with Mozilla Firefox:
Uses Goanna as a layout and rendering engine. Goanna behaves
slightly differently than Gecko in certain respects and may result in
different display of web pages. e.g.: Goanna renders gradients in a more
accurate color space (non-premultiplied).
Builds on UXP, our XUL platform in development. As such XUL is alive
and well in this browser and will not be deprecated.
Has some long-standing known issues with the Mozilla code-base fixed
Does not use Rust or the Photon user interface. You can expect a
familiar interface as-carried by Firefox between v29 and v56.
Does not use Electrolysis (e10s, multi-process browsing).
Does not require walled-garden extension signing.
A very sad "lack of feature" to me: Basilisk has *no* language supported
Any one around here know I if can do a kind of "forced install" of a
Firefox translation into Basilisk? Finding the right version (or some
with enough compatibility) should not be too hard...
