Major Gecko Announcement!

Monday March 20th, 2000

Dave Hodder writes, "Yahoo has an article on Netscape 6, headed 'Netscape's Revolutionary Gecko Browser Technologies Adopted by IBM, Intel, Liberate, NetObjects, Nokia, Red Hat, and Sun Microsystems'. It also mentions Gecko, XUL and AOL TV."

Most of the names on the list shouldn't be a surprise to most Mozilla followers. MozillaZine announced the Nokia/Intel Internet appliance months ago, and there are well known developers from RedHat, Sun, and IBM making major contributions to the codebase.

Interesting, however, is the quote from Mitchell Kertzman, President and CEO of Liberate Technologies. Mitchell states, "Netscape Gecko fits well as a key component of our software, helping us create a better interactive TV experience and resulting in greater success for AOL TV and other partners using the Liberate platform". It looks like Mozilla's reach is going beyond the desktop, beyond the "Internet Appliance" and into the set-top arena.

#34 maybe the problem isn't mozilla

I that the problem really can be fixed within Mozilla, but...

I've got a Logitech Mouseman+ wheel and its drivers allow the wheel to be used with almost any scrollbar (including Mozilla's "GFX scrollbars"). I can even do an "autoscroll" by pressing on the wheel... however it's not "smooth" scrolling like in MSOffice or Internet Exploiter.

Perhaps there is similar software that works with other scroll mice.

I also remember my old MS mouse's wheel working in Mozilla too, but I don't remember having any special drivers.
