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?

Well, according to this <> (<>) they are using Gecko and do support HTML 4, XML, CSS, JS and, tahdah, XUL. Flash memory footprint of 9 MB and runtime memory consumption of 32 MB (both plus plugins). They say they are using the Kaffe Java VM, xpdf and support Shockwave Flash, RealPlayer and mp3/WAVE/AU playback.

They are also talking about mail crypto. I'm wondering whether that means they've ported Messenger, too. In any case sounds quite impressive!

... Also wondering whether any of these performance/footprint optimizations are usable for and fed back into Mozilla?!
