Saturday December 20th, 2003

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.

#2 Why? Because.

That's a bit short-sighted, isn't it? An Amiga port might not seem too important to you or I, but it certainly would to the strong Amiga contingent who would love a modern, complete, standards-compliant browser with a strong user base. The more platforms Mozilla can fill, the better for Mozilla as a whole.

Besides ... it's his money, he can put it wherever he pleases. The fact that he chooses to do it anywhere in the vicinity of Mozilla is good for all of us, in some way.
