    Basilisk is an open-source web browser created by the developer of the Pale Moon browser.[4][5] There are releases for Microsoft Windows and Linux,[6] and unofficial build for Android. There is unofficial discontinued build for macOS[3].

    First released in 2017,[4] Basilisk is a perpetual beta intended to refine the UXP codebase it is built from.[7][8] Pale Moon and other applications are also built from this codebase.[9]

    Like Pale Moon, Basilisk is a fork of Firefox with substantial divergence.[10] Basilisk has the user interface of the Firefox version 29–56 era (unlike Pale Moon, which has the Firefox 4–28 interface).

    For add-ons, Basilisk has roughly similar support as Pale Moon for XUL/XPCOM extensions[11] and NPAPI plugins, all of which are no longer supported in Firefox. Basilisk also had experimental support for current Firefox WebExtensions, but this was removed in February 2019.[12]

    Unlike Pale Moon, Basilisk has support for Widevine DRM[13][14] and WebRTC.[15]

    Basilisk for MacOS[edit]

    Basilisk for MacOS, codename "Serpent" is a unofficial and discontinued version of the Basilisk Web Browser. It is similar to the original Basilisk, just the difference is the Operating System. It is released its final version on June 11, 2020 and discontinued support on March 10, 2021.
