Thanks, Walt. Honestly, I haven't tried any of the one based on the
webKit engine and probably won't until forced to after 52ESR is
de-supported. However, looking over that link, it doesn't appear offer
anywhere near what I use TMP for, such as:

- Force to open in new tab
- Open duplicate tabs next to original
- Open all sources (bookmarks, URLbar, search bar, &c) in tabs
- Enable upto 99 undo closed tabs
etc <- to name a few

Basilisk can use TMP.
https://www.basilisk-browser.org/

I see it created and maintained by team behind Pale Moon. Did they split
off from Pale Moon folks? Are they a splinter group within Pale Moon?

Also, I had installed Pale Moon several months back and was displeased
with its support of several of my extensions, including TMP.

Does it have an extension site similar to AMO where one can install user
add-ons?

It's the same team.
You can use the AMO site.

Any idea why they are supporting two browsers?

Looks like it will be the future of Palemoon.
"UXP will be the long-term future for Pale Moon. As such, we need something (an application) to develop this alongside our current browser platform and back-end. Eventually, Pale Moon will become a "UXP application", just like Basilisk is now. UXP applications retain full customization and freedom in application layout code, so the "look and feel" will not significantly change when Pale Moon is moved to the new platform (somewhere in 2018). Basilisk will allow us to develop and mature UXP so it'll be ready when we want to move over to it."

Thanks for the clarification, I find that encouraging, actually.
