    I have MyPal installed. So far I see no benefit over firefox. I've only tried it twice. (its an experiment!) It looks (layouts) remarkably similar to FF, can one install ff extensions/addons?

    If you're using any browser based on Pale Moon (New Moon, MyPal, ArticFox) you will have to use legacy XUL extensions (no going to mozilla.addons.org because they are incompatible - WEBEX).

    Get some from Pale Moon's website:

    https://addons.palemoon.org/extensions/

    Optionally, install the Classic Add-ons archive extension which gives you access to almost all legacy Firefox extensions:

    Centaury has experimental support for WEBEX so some addons from mozilla.addons.org will work as well as legacy XUL - best of both worlds.

    I'm not entirely sure what all the differences are, though at first glance it looks like MyPal is based on a newer version than ArticFox.

    Lately, I have been having one URL issue. It's "MyHermes" tracking (parcel). I have to use Opera or Firefox which can display properly, just not in Basilisk.

    I have updated the string to 80.0 since, still the same (blank content and unable to click on Track with response). I was wondering whether you have the same issue with Serpent.

    Google Chrome is the best

    Google Chrome hasn't supported Windows XP in years, so you're probably using a very old version.

    UPDATE: I had someone complaining that YouTube main page doesn't load properly. After much by trial and error, I found out that less is more in the useragent strings. After I have changed them into

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; rv:80.0) Firefox/80.0

    Both sites now display fine.
