1. To see the UXP Browser Bundle page, click here.

The UXP Browser Bundle is 9, count 'em, 8 XUL-com­pat­i­ble browsers and other pro­grams in one tarball, build­a­ble with one, count it, one sim­ple CLI com­mand.

The 9 pro­grams include work-alikes for Chatzilla [Ambassador], Classic Firefox [Albus Luna], Newer Firefox [Basilisk], Netscape [Blue Gorilla and Borealis], Seamonkey [Blue Gorilla], and Thunderbird [Icedove, Interlink, and Epyrus].

Ring the Bell. It's a lifetime supply of XUL.

The UXP Browser Bundle includes Albus Luna. Albus Luna is a Classic Firefox (tm) work-alike based on a well-known Firefox (tm) fork.

The up­stream fork — PaleMoon (tm) — is an important pro­gram. However, it is dis­tri­bu­ted under unusually re­stric­tive terms and con­di­tions. Albus Luna provides the FOSS com­mun­i­ty with a de­ri­va­tive that can be mod­i­fied without issues.

Albus Luna is a pre-Quantum Classic Firefox (tm) fork that you can mod­i­fy largely as you wish.

Does your startup need its own browser? Wish to make a Babushka browser for your grandmother's birthday? PaleMoon forbids this. Albus Luna says, go nuts, have fun, add a new star to the FOSS galaxy.

2. Thunderbird was the most important FOSS email pro­gram of the 2010s. But in 2017 it was es­sen­tial­ly terminated. A pro­gram with the same name existed but the new one required Rust and didn't sup­port XUL.

It was fine to make a new Thunderbird. But it was wrong to throw away the old one. To address this, the UXP Browser Bundle pre­sent­ly provides 3, count 'em, 3 FOSS Thunderbirds. All three of the Thunderbirds sup­port XUL and none of them requires Rust.

The 3 Thunderbirds are Icedove, Interlink, and Epyrus or Hermopolis. Note: We're in the pro­cess of removing “official” branding from Interlink and might do so with Epyrus as well. This will prevent political issues of the type that are linked be­low.

* Mypal. MyPal was Feodor2's PaleMoon (tm) fork. It's quite a story for another time.

* Interlink. Back from Limbo.
