All your branding are belong to Palesomething.
This extension will give Pale Moon an identity crisis by generating a new randomized browser name every time you open a new window. Confuse your friends and family with names like "Intel Firebadger" and "Xerox Poweroyster". It's as fun as you want it to be!
Features:
Palesomething is a port of Firesomething for Pale Moon. This extension was originally written by Michael O'Rourke.
Since Firesomething's final release for Firefox in May of 2007, Mozilla has abandoned its own technologies in favor of poor parody of Google's protocols (WebExtensions), leaving many developers, including this one, disillusioned with the direction the Mozilla is taking. In contrast, Pale Moon has stepped into place as an XUL-centric browser, keeping backward compatibility better than Mozilla's own flagship project. Palesomething was ported to Pale Moon to bring back some of that early optimism which Firefox has long since lost.

 This is a fantastic way to better characterize pale moon as other browsers without having to actually use them. One thing I'll suggest is this ; In the top left corner f pale moon shows the menu bar. That menu bar is not affected by your addon, and kinda ruins the immersion for whatever trick you're going for. May I ask for some compatibility for that menu bar? I'd libe to characterize pale moon as internet explorer, but that doesn't currently work with that menu bar.

Just something I'd like to ask for.

 Unfortunately that can not be done. The App Menu button text can be changed, but any difference in width will not be handled gracefully by the page title text that's drawn next to the App Menu button. Anything longer than the text "Pale Moon" will be overlapped by the page title.
 My suggestion is to right-click on the toolbar and enable the old, normal Menu Bar rather than the App Menu.

 yeah but if you have more than one and you just want to change the name of the browser (example: want to make pale moon 100% into netscape [via moonscape theme, tab mix plus, etc.])

 An awesome funny app! These names remind me of the names from MS3K's "Space Mutiny - the many names of David Ryder" video on Youtube. I mean, wouldn't you like your browser window name to come up as "Blast Hardcheese" or "Fridge Largemeat"? :)
