Pale Moon 29.3.0 (29.3.0a1 unstable)


Pale Moon 29.3.0

Pale Moon est, ce qu'on pourrait appeler, un clone de Firefox créé par des développeurs qui étaient en désaccord avec la feuille de route du navigateur de la fondation Mozilla à l'époque de la mise en place du thème Australis (celui qui ressemble à s'y méprendre à Google Chrome). Afin d'être plus indépendants possible, les développeurs ont également décidé de cloner le moteur de rendu Gecko (et de l'appeler Goanna) afin d'y apporter eux-même les correctifs de sécurité et autres nouveautés tout en gardant l'esprit de "l'ancien" Firefox.

De ce fait, Pale Moon est désormais un navigateur totalement indépendant de Mozilla et suit donc son propre rythme de mise à jour. Pale Moon est disponible sur Windows (à partir de Vista) et sur Linux.

Implementation notes:

  • Brotli compression (introduced a few years back) has originally been restricted to https only in web browsers because there was some concern about interaction with middleware boxes with poor design trying to transparently recompress data not recognizing the new compression stream type and causing failures. The kind of processing done in those boxes (SDCH) has long since been deprecated. Since then, the segregation for Brotli between http and https has been maintained by Chrome and Firefox as a vessel to further promote https over http by artificially keeping http less efficient (denying the use of the more dense Brotli compression). Since there is no technical reason not to enable Brotli over http, we will accept (by way of Accept-encoding) Brotli over plain http from this version on, offering up to 20% less bandwidth use when servers also support it.
  • We maintain a blacklist of ports that should not be addressed from a browser (primarily to prevent scripted abuse). Not too long ago we updated these ports with a number of additional (higher range) ones, including port 10080 (Amanda). Unfortunately there is too much overlap with other common services/devices that also use this (arbitrarily chosen) port, so we've removed this particular port again from our blacklist.
  • The ResizeObserver implementation was changed to now support the updated specification for this API, including the experimental properties contentBoxSize and borderBoxSize which allows finer control to respond to size changes of elements. The old spec sizing property of contentRect remains supported for web compatibility.
