Arctic Fox 27.9.12 (Firefox 63.0) a fork of Pale Moon

Hi All,

Arctic Fox 27.9.12 (Firefox 63.0) a fork of Pale Moon is available for Linux PPC. :-)

Code: Select all
Arctic Fox is a forked and rebranded Pale Moon 27.9.4. The goal here is to implement specific security updates and bug fixes to keep this browser as up to date as possible for aging systems. Examples would be Mac OSX 10.6-10.8, PowerPC's running Linux, etc.

Arctic Fox will build for Mac OS X 10.6 and up, i386/x86_64/PowerPC Linux, and more than likely any other unix/bsd varient. Ideally, we'd like to get it working on PowerPC 10.5 as well.

So I've had a read about it and still trying to figure out how it would benefit over a PPC optimised port of FireFox? Such as the one the PPC laptop people worked on. It looks to be of benefit for older OSX versions. But it's strange you would be using an old OSX version on x86 based hardware for people with a Mac. Apart from Apple purposely not supporting old Macs and making Linux a superior choice to use. But obviously you don't usually have a Mac to run Linux.

At this point it could be best to use the newest OS, such as Linux, with a modern browser. Yes I'm selling out on that statement but this is still possible with our PPC Linux.

Could be good for OS4 but that would need too much work. :-)

Hi All,

A new Arctic-Fox version is available.

Hi All,

Great news! :-)

Wicknix has released the latest version of the Arctic Fox web browser, version 27.9.14, which includes many bug fixes. He compiled it on his 1.5GHz G4 Mac Mini 7 hours yesterday!


I successfully tested it on the following Linux PowerPC distributions today (see screenshots):

It works fantastic and it is really fast! Many thanks to Wicknix for his great work!

Please test it.

Thanks,
Christian
