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.

I agree! Many people and children in Japan have PS2 or Dreamcast.Dreamcast is known as easy-internet device.

Dreamcast uses SuperH 4 (made by HITACHI) and PS/2 uses its original CPU(I have heard it is the extention of the MIPS).Softoware could developped by C,so i have an expectation that someone would port mozilla on it.

but, sony have make a contact with spyglass... <http://www.spyglass.com/n…/releases/030200sony.html> and current DC browser is Netfront of the access <http://www.access.co.jp/top.html>
