Pale Moon for Windows XP

pm4xp


Important Announcement concerning the end of support for PM4XP

As was previously noted below, as of July 14, 2015 we will no longer be supporting the PM4XP project.

The reason for this is that the last of the retail available versions of Windows based on the NT 5x kernel did "End of Life" on that date. This means there are no further security updates for Windows Server 2003 (Windows NT 5.2).

With this and the fact that support for Windows XP (Windows NT 5.1) ended a year ago there seems very little point to continuing to produce Main-Line style builds of Pale Moon for an obsolete and unsupported operating system.

However, all is not completely lost for those users as Moonchild Productions will continue to produce an NT 5x compatible build in the form of Pale Moon for Atom indefinitely. This Atom version of the browser is intended for low power processors and does have an optimization bias toward the Atom architecture. However, in practical use this bias has very little impact on non-Atom processors. It also has a few tweaks geared to systems with low resources as well as does not include the web developer tools.

If you are a Windows XP user, Binary Outcast highly recommends switching to the Atom build of the browser to continue getting updates.

On July 14th BinOC we pushed a final update that will disable the internal updater for PM4XP so that it does not continue to ping our server with requests for an update that will never come. There, however, was not any other changes in this update.

Binary Outcast wishes thanks to all the Windows XP users for choosing our 3rd party contributed build of Pale Moon.
