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?

are we sure this "joint development on a browser" is refering to Mozilla? I realize Mozilla is the best thing AOLTW has going for them, in terms of a browser, and in my opinion it would be stupid to start over, but AOLTW has never seemed all that supportive of the Mozilla project. If Sony intends to throw it's weight (Developement, marketing, other) behind Mozilla, i'm ALL FOR IT... but I guess I want to hear the word "Mozilla" come out of one of those company's mouths in relation to this announcement before I rejoice.

Again, pardon the skeptisism....
