Thanks Scott! Palemoon sounds really promising. I even vaguely remember
someone mentioned it to me a while ago (you?). It fell off my attention
probably because my main workstation is FreeBSD (and such is my laptop).
But I'm sure, I will have no problem building palemoon. So, few months
from now most likely I will have it s my main browser (if so I probably
will volunteer to maintain palemoon FreeBSD port, unless someone else

Thanks a lot!
