Pale moon worked well for me using Windoze, which it's optimized for.
It's memory control did not seem to be as good with the Mint/Lubuntu
distro I installed on that same machine. HOWEVER at the time I was using
an older single core machine that the later V of Palemoon didn't work
with because of a chipset instruction not available in the Turlon64
chip. I never did try it with a later CPU and a recent Palemoon release..
