Classic Mac OS Builds of Mozilla Transitioning to Port Status

Sunday December 15th, 2002

MacSlash has an article about Mozilla dropping support for Mac OS 8 and 9. The Classic Mac OS build of Mozilla is being moved to port status (i.e. beginning with 1.3 Alpha, mozilla.org will not produce official builds of Mozilla for versions of Mac OS before X). If you're still using Mac OS 8 or 9 and have CarbonLib installed, you may be able to use MozillaCFM, the Carbonised build of Mozilla for Mac OS X. Information about this is available in the 1.3 Alpha Release Notes but note that we haven't tried this ourselves. Eventually, mozilla.org plans to only make FizzillaMach builds of Mozilla for Mac OS X. Microsoft has already stopped making new releases of Internet Explorer for versions of Mac OS before X.

As it is with Windows 95 and Mozilla, the same should apply to MacOS 8 and 9. Although I'm not at all a Mac user, I still feel that Mozilla or some of its derivatives should be produced for older operating systems.
