Palemoon is a Mozilla Firefox derivative. I'm sure you already know that Mozilla Firefox is a popular open source web browser. The Palemoon project does not make a Linux version, but the Pale Moon For Linux project does (as the name suggests).

Some of the key differences between Palemoon/Pale Moon For Linux and Mozilla Firefox are the exclusion of Google's Safe Browsing, and that not all Mozilla Firefox add-ons are compatible (though many are).

Features:
- Optomized for modern cpus
- Firefox compatibility mode
- Add-ons (Palemoon & Mozilla Firefox)
- Tabbed browsing
- HTML5 support

Install Pale Moon For Linux 25.3.1 X86-64:

Steps:
1. Login to your root account.
2. Open a terminal-emulator and type "su example1".
3. In a terminal-emulator type "cd /home/example1".
4. In a terminal-emulator type "wget -t 0 -nc --waitretry=10 "http://sourceforge.net/projects/pm4linux/files/25.3.1/palemoon-25.3.1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2" ".
5. In a terminal-emulator type "tar -xpjf /home/example1/palemoon-25.3.1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2".
6. In a terminal-emulator type "exit". This will drop you back to root.
7. In a terminal-emulator type "mv "/home/example1/palemoon" "/usr/bin/palemoonforlinux" ". This moves the binaries to a folder in "/usr/bin".
8. (Optional) In a terminal-emulator type "rm -f /home/example1/palemoon-25.3.1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2". This deletes the downloaded archive.
9. Close the terminal-emulator.

Notes:
- Substitute all instances of "example1" for your username!
- You can verify that su (switch user) was successful by typing "whoami", it will output the username.
- Pale Moon For Linux comes in the form of pre-compilted binaries.
- Pale Moon For Linux is a third-party linux derivative of the Palemoon project whose goals are to make Palemoon available to Linux users.
- The archive download is 26.3 mebibytes.
- These instructions were tested on Slackware 14.1 X86-64, but they should work for many full-sized major distributions provided you have wget, a root account, and a user account. For distros that disable the root account you can login as your regular user, and then type "sudo -i" in your terminal-emulator to simulate a root logon. Use "exit" to drop back to your regular user. If you have a 32bit OS there is an X86-32 (i686) release of Pale Moon For Linux; just make sure to download it instead of the 64bit one used in the above instructions.

Got it in Mint 64. There is an SH file for Debian that lets you run updates just like on Windows. I've used the update file on Kubuntu 14.04 also.
