I'm using "New Moon <https://msfn.org/board/topic/182647-my-browser-builds-part-3>", a derivative of Pale Moon which in turn is based on Firefox.
Why? Believe it or not, but at the moment I'm still using an AMD Athlon XP 3200+ and it's one of the very few browsers that still works on my cpu. It does mean however that websites that utilize the latest Javascript for instance won't work for me.
I do know I'm in desperate need of a new system and that'll probably be an AMD "Rembrandt" desktop APU or otherwise an AMD ZEN 4 cpu. Both scheduled for release later this year. The transition will be a shock I'm sure.

If you can share any useful hits you see in the network-traffic when you visit http://www.freeintertv.com/view/id-2308, then I could have a look. Alternatively I could have a look on a much newer system of one of my family members, which I will visit in a couple of days.

Or minified:

$ xidel -s "http://www.freeintertv.com/view/id-2565" -e 'x:request({"post":request-combine((),{"chname":string-to-base64Binary(extract(//meta[@property="og:image"]/@content,"([a-z_]+)\.jpg",1)),"ch":"http://www.freeintertv.com/externals/tv-russia/smotret-tv3-online","html5":"11"})/substring(url,2),"url":"http://www.freeintertv.com/myAjax/get_item_m3u8/"})/extract(raw,"http.+m3u8")'
