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?

Erm. What?!?!? When is the last time you multitasked on a handheld? The general idea is that with a palmtop applications are welcome to basically use all the memory (with small amounts left for various things, but bear in mind the OS tends to run in separate, protected memory) - so why on earth shouldn't nanozilla make use of the RAM it has on offer?!?!?
