https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=251117 --- Comment #109 from Kostas Oikonomou <email@example.com> --- Alternative to Pale Moon: SeaMonkey I've recently switched to SeaMonkey, see https://www.seamonkey-project.org/. You can see the details on the above site, but, briefly, (1) SeaMonkey has the "classic" look that Pale Moon has/had, (2) it is based on the Firefox rendering engine, so compatibility with web sites is much better than PM's, (3) it also offers a built-in mail client based on Thunderbird, but again with a classic UI. The situation with plugins/extensions is not as good as with PM, but should improve. There is an unofficial port to FreeBSD, see https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/disaster-strikes-seamonkey-removed-from-ports-tree.71335/page-1. Interestingly, the port was removed from the tree for some of the same reasons that PM was removed *initially*. The good thing about the port is that it requires no changes at all to the code, it consists only of distinfo, pkg-desrc, and Makefile. The downside is that (currently) the port depends on python2.7, like PM. But if you've kept python2.7 around, building SeasMonkey is very simple. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
