I'd say leftovers. But some of them were pretty big, or being used internally for significant work flows.

Oh yeah! I do understand the reasoning behind the IE-only sites and why they've lasted as long as they have. I've always been grateful that I only had to deal with that sort of crapola on an infrequent basis...'-}}


I've got 8-9 browser versions installed--all portable versions of Firefox and PaleMoon. PaleMoon is the only browser I keep current as I have absolutely no intention of using the current versions of Firefox since my most favored addons won't work in their quantum crap--my most current version of Firefox is 52. I even set a Firefox portable as my default system browser which was fun to get working.



Once I understood how portables worked (my first foray into portable browsers was a mess) I have not install a non-portable (standard?) browser since--I have actually never cared for the Registry approach although the underlying theory makes sense...

The uptodown.com site has an excellent trove of portable software--not just browsers but all sorts of other portable goodies and the site has older versions unlike portableapps.com whose siteowner will only carry the most current versions (his site, his choice even if it is shortsighted--no pun intended...'-}})...

Waterfox allows me to use pre-quantum addons.

Yes! Most of the forks do--like PaleMoon. I think I downloaded Waterfox but never got around to installing it...I'll take a look at it...

I'm not so sure. All or some of the forks were based on Mozilla’s Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR). So everything was rosy until Mozilla stopped supporting this on September 5, 2018. I don't know about Pale Moon, but Sea Monkey won't run all the old plugins now.

Oh! How interesting...I didn't realize but my guess is it would depend on the underlying rationale of the fork creators. I know that PaleMoon was created out of the crap that was australis--vs. the crap that is quantum...'-}}--so real (in my opinion of course) add-ons/extensions still work...
