AOLTW Announces Sony Pact

Tuesday November 13th, 2001

Normally we wouldn't mention this, except there was a key quote that we thought should be highlighted in the press release:

* The joint development of an Internet browser designed for optimal performance, a consistent experience, and greater convenience on networked consumer electronic devices. Both companies envision not only employing the browser in future Sony products but also making it available to other consumer electronics manufacturers.
Could we soon see Mozilla on Sony devices like the Playstation or other pc based devices?

However, initial promises of Gecko being suitable for small devices have not held up over the years. The code, memory and processor bandwidth footprints are all quite large for the current generation of embedded systems. Of course that will be much less true in the fuiure, since the costs of all three items are continuing to drop fairly fast.
