Well. Have read the whole discussion. Too bad, Pale Moon is the only way to watch 4K quality videos on youtube on OI. Our outdated Firefox can't deal with this.

If you rejected Pale Moon then please help me with the porting of the Epiphany Browser. You could see my mail about this on this list. I'm currently stuck at libdazzle.

Epiphany can't deal with youtube, too. But at least it has no problem loading github's modern interface. Our Firefox just showed it age, it works very badly with github's modern interface.

BTW, I think I will contact athenian200 to get his binary build. I will continue using Pale Moon to be able to watch 4K videos on youtube on OI, regardless of it's accepted to be packaged by the OI team or not.
