New Moon Observations

All in all, I'm liking it. It's basically Firefox streamlined and with better privacy, though not as good in that regard as Epic. Like in Epic, I note that suspiciously relevant ads tend not to show up. It's less clunky and faster, but as a trade-off is not as comprehensive with its ad blocker as Epic. It doesn't update "trackers blocked" in the sidebar, but New Moon has a better search engine, and on the blog allows certain formatting options Epic didn't as noted in the previous post.  All in all, it seems to be a pretty decent browser and I'm pleased.

I've nevertheless been very happy with Epic and will still use it fairly often. For  instance, thanks to Epic's very aggressive ad and tracker blocking, (which sometimes causes issues) I'd forgotten what it was like to to be constantly assaulted by You Tube ads. Well, Pale/New Moon runs them just fine.

Still, privacy issues aside,  It's been a while since I forswore Firefox and I'd forgotten how pleasant that a browser based on its engine can be.
