My build of New Moon (temp. name) a.k.a. Pale Moon fork targetting XP

Recommended Posts

Mailnews will only work on SSE2 cpus I take it?

According to the official Web site for Interlink that is correct. AIUI the big issue is the JavaScript JIT compiler, which emits SSE2 code.

JavaScript may not seem relevant to an email client, but a lot of internal JavaScript is used under the covers.

Perhaps an older version of Thunderbird could be forked to produce an SSE-only build....

Should be possible - the official version is available in 64-bit form - but I haven't seen @roytam1 post a 64-bit build of MailNews or BNavigator, although he posts 64-bit versions of NM 27/28 and Serpent 52/55.

yeah it is possible to build 64bit editions, but since there is no demand (I don't use them, and no user requesting 64bit builds) so I don't build 64bit BOC-related builds by default.

As typical my installer will install the latest of roy's builds, and I would like to add that I'm about half done with another version of the installer with some features people have requested. Stay tuned!

Plus, I tired running the x64 build of InterLink on Windows 8.  It threw an error (I'll have to go fetch it).  Apparently, the x64 version requires the AVX instruction set.  I'm sure that would cause problems on older x64 versions of XP on older hardware, no?

This is probably a stupid question, but which browser should I be using for my day to day? Is BOC a replacement for New Moon?

Really it's mostly a matter of taste. The main difference is the UI: BOC looks very much like SeaMonkey; Serpent looks very much like (pre-Photon) Firefox; NM 28 looks like older (pre-Australis) Firefox. They're all based on UXP though.

If you have an older, pre-SSE2 PC, you may want to look at @roytam1's Firefox 45 or NM 27 builds instead.

This may help. I finally buckled down and updated my browser downloader .bat to handle Roytam's FF 45 ESR SSE-only builds. It turned out to be quite a challenge: the file list can't be downloaded the same way as the others (downloading the root directory containing the files only returns a bunch of JavaScript, no file names); the "correct" file list URL had to be parsed differently; and last but not least, there was an issue with version numbers:

On 6/13/2019 at 7:18 PM, Mathwiz said:

One problem was that I couldn't just download the last file name in the listing any more, because that would be firefox-45.9.9 while the latest is firefox-45.9.16 or so. (The file names are sorted alphabetically, so "9" follows "16.") I realized I might soon have the same problem with palemoon-28 if it gets up to 28.10, so I wrote some new batch code to parse out the file date and download the latest file by date. That should future-proof this.

Also added a feature: if a "myuseragents.js" file is in the same directory as the batch file, it will offer to install it after downloading & extracting the browser (except mailnews, of course). Tried to make it modular so I can add more "installations" of this type later. (Even this was a little tricky because K-Meleon uses a different path for .js startup files of this type than the other browsers.)

Edit: Minor fix to above changes to get the latest K-Meleon build by date.

Edit: Batch file is now included in the .7z downloadable at http://i430vx.net/files/mathwiz/Browser Installer.7z

the /gpc/ directory is the remnants of old good Google Page Creator, only minimal adaption of php code was written when Google Page Creator shut down and moved to my host. for the file list, you may access index.php?sitemap for that.

Ah! Thanks, great not needing to open the JS+XHR doors anymore to see the file list :-)

Good idea. What still keeps me riddling is that ancient defaults-pref path used in the non-KM browsers, why only KM uses Mozillas newer defaults path. And suspect this mystery (to me) is probably related to the other one, that you can't overwrite the useragents hardcoded in omni.ja by a simple defaults js-file. Also have once read that both paths can work simultaneously, depending from some settings (perhaps in mozilla.cfg, can't remember). Anyway, for the time being would suggest to not make that path product dependant, just have the script look if the file exists inside the newer path, and if not found, look it up inside the ancient one?
