Is Pale Moon in Debian repos, no.
AntiX 15(64bit) and MX-14.4 non-pae are on "Live" thumb drives for booting to the Apples, can the thumbs be updated,
no not yet, working on the EFI mess Apple has made for linux(anther subject).
PPA are great for the fast trackers like Kubuntu. The CR repos are great for MX-14, Mepis, keeps packages useful for
the OS. The CR repos and PPA are the same, just at different levels, maybe remember the version may affect the packages
A couple of folks used the CR repos for Pale Moon to test it out and stevo's build worked. I used Pale Moon's web site
download to a 64bit Debian 8 and it works, the choice is increased and yours.
Another browser to choose, lets see if the folks at Pale Moon keep pace with FF updates.
Did I miss any point of Pale Moon?
Just where the PPA 25.3.1 was compared to Firefox 40--but the versioning is quite different, since security fixes are backported to Pale Moon, and "bloat" features added to recent FF releases are not built.
It's a lot easier for someone to build the packages on a PPA, since all the maintainer does is upload the source and Launchpad's machines build the packages. Pale Moon takes several hours to build one architecture on my laptop running the CPU at full speed.
As noted earlier in the thread, we also have packages built on Jessie in the MX 15 repo.
