James "Kovu" Russell writes: "A former Netscape executive who chooses to remain anonymous has just donated $4,200 to the AmiZilla booty, resulting in a total booty of over $8,400! 'His only request is that he wants to see the amount get over $10,000 so is requesting others donate what they can,' says the story at Rock on!" The AmiZilla project aims to raise a bounty to encourage programmers to port Mozilla to Amiga OS.

All that, IMVHO, is beside the point. While it's, well, interesting to see so many people giving so much for an Amiga port, the overwhelming majority of mozilla users will not benefit much from the endeavor. With IE adopting many of the most compelling reasons for an alternative browser, ie. popup blocker, etc, and with mozilla still mired in low single digits in market share, it's vital that mozilla survives AOL's abandonment. Ask Amiga users this: do you want to see moz at stregth two years from now, or an Amiga port in a few months?
