I still use Windows 7, have strengthened my security on my computers, and am thinking of trying Linux. I've read many excellent reviews of Linux and may do a test first  and then, if I install it, I'll keep Windows 7 and do a dual boot where I can choose which operating system to use. Seems interesting enough. ;D ;)

I switched to Palemoon as my daily brower (in Windows) because FF is soooo slow.
I saw this program, SpeedyFox, https://www.majorgeeks.com/content/page/how_to_speed_up_your_firefoxchrome_or_safari_browser.html
and I've downloaded it but haven't unzipped it.
Here is the developer's site https://www.crystalidea.com/speedyfox
Has anyone tried it?
I'm one that prefers to do my own manual changes and not have a program do some unknown tweaks therefore I'm hesitant to try it.

I use it and it seems to work well. I use Pale Moon and seems alright.

Yeah, good ol' Freedomlist. I missed those sometimes spirited posts I had back and forth which, fortunately, didn't go too far. All in all, for its time, it was a rather enlightening experience being at FL. RIP Freedomlist. ;D :)

The new version of Malwarebytes free doesn't give as many options for scanning as the previous 3.8.3 version. There used to be three choices, now there is just this one and it tales much longer for it to scan my computer. ::) They really changed their look with the version 4.

 Like Windows 7,  I think I will stick with the version 3--as long as I keep getting updates.  Windows 10 may be good in the long term but Micros$ft removed a lot of features that I like in Windows 7--like their media player. I'll just get more security  for more possible security vulnerabilities. Besides, I understand that there are still Windows XP users out there. :o I wonder how they're able to keep using software updates, etc. with that operating system. ::) ???

Well, Pale Moon is pretty secure anyway, so no need for Malwarebytes extension. ;)

I know that. I just think that with so many folk, including here using Pale Moon, it would be nice if this extension was available to us, too. ::)

I love it.  8)

A writer of Toni's stature--worldwide, by the way--this is the least that can and should be done in her honor and memory.

Toni Morrison, Nobel Prize laureate, and winner of other literature awards, writer of masterpieces such as "Beloved," "Song of Solomon," "Jazz" and "Sula," died yesterday at age 88.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/06/books/toni-morrison-dead.html

Her work predominately went into the African American experience, in particular the women with her poetic yet piercing interpretations and style.

I love her work. What a loss. :'(

Freedomlist--such sweet memories.  ;D

I certainly made my voice heard on this site, The early 2000s the possibilities were ther. But here I am at Landzdown. I've been much more mellow, if you will, since coming here.

Freedomlist RIP ;D
