As of June 2019, what is the most up-to-date browser for 32-bit XP SP3 for SSE2+ systems? Would it be Maxthon 5.2.7.3000? I read in the palemoon fork thread for XP concerning Maxthon,
it doesn't seem to allow running most DRM sites (netflix, etc). Second, it is not stable/usable on XP in portable mode. Third, and most importantly: DO NOT INSTALL IT! It messes with the firewall directly, and somehow manages to bypass programs controlling access to security settings in a non-transparent way.

So far, the portable version appears to work on my AM2 system. But is it anymore secure than using Advanced Chrome 54.20.6530.0 or Firefox ESR 52.9.0?

Is there any security or other benefits in using Serpent (Basilisk) 2018.08.25 or SeaMonkey 2.49.4 over Firefox ESR 52.9.0?

It appears that Mypal is still being updated and is on version 28.5.2 (updated 2019-06-05). Is version 28.5.2 based on Firefox ESR 52.9.0, or some earlier Firefox release? Is there any security benefit in using Mypal over Advanced Chrome 54.20.6530.0 or Firefox ESR 52.9.0?

Virtualization must be enabled.

SSE1 hidden <Pentium 3
Add this line to the .vmx file: cpuid.1.edx=----:--0-:----:----:----:----:----:----

SSE2 hidden <Pentium 4
Add this line to the .vmx file: cpuid.1.edx=----:-0--:----:----:----:----:----:----

SSE and SSE2 hidden <Pentium 3
Add this line to the .vmx file: cpuid.1.edx=----:-00-:----:----:----:----:----:----

MMX hidden <Pentium
Add this line to the .vmx file: cpuid.1.edx=----:----:0---:----:----:----:----:----

CMOV <Pentium Pro
Add this line to the .vmx file: cpuid.1.edx=----:----:----:---0:----:----:----:----

- = use default value
0 = Hide feature
1 - enable feature

This likely isn't foolproof but may work in some cases.

Dug out my Athlon XP 2800+ and am in the process of setting it up again. Just finished hardware testing to prove stability and now working on setting up images for all the Windows versions. Interested to see if my 9700 pro works in NT4. :)

My iogear KVM is being a PITA with this computer for some reason so bought an extra mouse to bypass the KVM if I can't get it working.

Vmware will be mainly used for testing but this machine will be useful to test if software requires SSE2 and to test graphics that don't work in virtual machines.

PCem will be used to test if software requires SSE.

Virtualbox SSE

1. get virtualbox 4.2 ( 4.3 did not work for me on Windows host)
2. create windows xp x32 vm.
3. go to virtualbox folder and run

vboxmanage modifyvm vm_name --cpuidset 0x1 0x0001067a 0x00000800 0x00000209 0x018bf3ff
this will disable SSE and SSE2 on guest OS. To revert changes execute

vboxmanage modifyvm <name> --cpuidremoveall
First command will add next lines to vm_name.vbox file to CPUsection

<CpuIdTree>
<CpuIdLeaf id="1" eax="67194" ebx="2048" ecx="521" edx="25949183"/>
</CpuIdTree>
