Two New Mozilla Projects

Sunday April 25th, 1999

From arielb comes more Mozilla news. First, a company called Nexware is apparently porting (or has ported) GLIB and GTK+ to the QNX realtime OS. These libraries, according to their Projects page, are required to compile Mozilla, which leads me to believe that they have either successfully compiled, or are currently working on compiling, Mozilla for this platform. Nexware developed the MyWeb browser for the Philips MyWeb Internet appliance.

Second is a new browser from Custom Browser. This app seems to be similar to NeoPlanet, in which both IE and Gecko rendering engines will be available.

You are right, it will be different. It just seems like some of the work done porting to QNX can be used as a foundation for a port to the NG Amiga just like Neutrino is a base for Amiga OS5.0. At least it gets things moving in QNX direction. Amiga is mum right now, but they asked for suggestions and I sent them one telling them they should look seriously at Mozilla for their Internet browsing technologies, and that now was the time to go to the newsgroups and suggest features, etc. (<executive@amiga.com>). I would think that since the new AmigaOS is going to be tight and modular like Mozilla, that Mozilla would be the perfect match for NG Amiga. I hope so.
