    Guys,
    I've been using the MyPal 32 bit browser, and am enjoying it very much. However, I do see that there is a 64 bit version of it available, as well. Is there much difference between the two versions ? Should I keep using the 32 bit one, or is the 64 bit one an upgrade ?
    Thanks !

    depends on your system, is it a 32bit system or a 64bit system?

    The vastly improved Mypal version 68 is currently only available as a 32-bit program. It loads much faster and newer websites than the old Mypal v29.3 in 32-bit and 64-bit.

    Oh, great to hear Mypal 64-bit is back! Sad to hear that won't be much use to me on XP64 haha. And I run Win7 32-bit (the Tiny7 ISO) in my VM for smaller memory and hard drive usage than 7x64 would take.
    If anyone is curious, it's comfortably running Proton Mail on Mypal 68, plus 3 websites on Epic Privacy Browser, on just 3gb of VM memory and 7.3gb HD space. Browser caches disabled and Win7 swapfile disabled, just like my XP64 setup and browsers.

    I've been using the 32 bit version [68.13.7b] and I spoof the user agent.

    user_pref("general.oscpu.override", "Windows NT 10.0");
    user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win32; x86; rv:119.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/119.0");

    I find I get the best results from that UA on my slow and quite old system.

    You won't be disappointed folks, this browser is getting better-and-better and he has added new search engines such as DDG for searching from the address bar.

    Heavens to Betsy just 1 letter changes the whole sentence and meaning. I meant *have* instead of the typo *hate* ... so I meant I have my font(s) and sizes tweaked to my liking - clean and simple. Sorry time ran out to edit that last posting.

    Take good care.

    My MyPal68 buttons are uMatrix green, uBlock origin red, User-Agent Switcher pink, change geolocation green, SuperStop white, Forget Button blue.

    User-Agent Switcher gives me one click access to change UA's, I've added some custom ones to the bottom of the list, and what I really like is it'll save the UA per website and auto-switch for you.

    What I really want to point out is some websites I've still had trouble after switching to W10 / FF119, but when I switch to identify as Linux11 / FF83 some of those trouble websites start working! Clearly they are more lenient to serve different Linux systems without demanding the latest-and-greatest, compared to the IronFist approach to Windows systems.
