I hope none of you nerds here use Palemoon as an alternative Firefox browser because the developer just came out against anti-racist measures and positions.

the word inverse is doing a lot of fucking work here

@radicalrobit @JohnBrownJr "inverse bias," i.e. "reverse racism" by another name lol

Also did you catch the part where they call BLM & others part of the "opportunistic, aggressive driving forces that have the United States currently in chaos" and/or a "political or other extremist organization" and THEN claim "we do not support *nor* condemn BLM?" Yeah sure sounds like you don't condemn them pal🤦

@radicalrobit

wait til this guy finds out what banks and credit card companies do with their money on the side

unless it's just BLM he has an issue with

@SeanAloysiusOBrien "unless it's just BLM he has an issue with"

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo couldn't be

@radicalrobit they wd like to sit on the neutral gallows, to which executioner and condemned have equal rights which must not be politicised

@radicalrobit I'm starting to be suspicious about any fork of a major open source project being just because the devs weren't racist/sexist enough. This is probably a bad assumption, but these nerds keep feeding it

@Timmy this was originally just a different build for the longest time and then when firefox dropped support for all its own add-ons by dropping things like XUL palemoon became its own completely separate fork. I never gave it any thought because it sacrifices a lot of improvements in speed and security for maintaining that legacy. so just like, whatever do your own thing.

but this shit is pathetic and so absolutely transparently racist.

@Timmy To balance it out for you, @glimpse is a fork of GIMP for wholesome reasons. 🙂

@radicalrobit Waterfox seems to be better for those looking for an alternative to Firefox.

@radicalrobit "Paying BIPOC is racist, actually."

Showing that ass, call it a Palemoon.

@radicalrobit I feel like the venn diagram between FOSS bros and "people who want to say the gamer word" is a circle at this point

@radicalrobit oof, I was just talking about how I used to use palemoon back when it actually was faster on Windows. Glad I never gave him any money.

@radicalrobit I had never heard of Pale Moon before today. A good sign that this racist "neutral" is smaller and less significant than expected? I hope...

@radicalrobit Anyone seeking a new browser may want to consider Waterfox, which is just Firefox with support for the old add-ons and less of the Mozilla junk. The developers have not shown any overt awfulness that we're aware of.

@radicalrobit
you should also mention that the other popular Firefox fork called "Basilisk" is maintained by the same team of bigots.

So fuck Palemoon and fuck Basilisk.
