Amiga Mozilla Betas Soon
Monday April 26th, 1999
An Amiga Mozilla Project, aMozillaX, is due out in beta soon, according to a chat transcript available here.
AMozillaX is not exactly Mozilla: it utilizes the Gecko layout engine, but the developers created a unique UI (not XUL). There are currently 8 coders working on the project, and the feature list is impressive. Can't wait to get some screenshots!

Will this mean anything to anything but Classic Amigans? I.e., will any of their codework do Mozilla, or Next Generation Amiga (based on QNX Neutrino 2) any good? At least it will put the Classic Amiga on viable Internet footing, if nothing else.

Well, almost all I know is from that chat transcript, but it sure looks to me like some of this might - potentially - be interesting for use on non-Amiga platforms. If nothing else, just having a Gecko-based browser running more smoothly than M4 would be cool (if in fact they pull it off, that is). But whether they do or not, the point of all this open source stuff is that things aren't bottlenecked by the successes and failures of the "official" Mozilla team quite as much as if it weren't open.

This is fantastic news. At last the 68X & PowerPC Classic Amigas will have the worlds best browser. And it sounds like they are getting the best version to boot!
Wow, a crew of clueless trash-talking hype makers. Haven't read so much shit for a long time. VRML, Shockwave and probably writing their own JVM with 8 nerds, finishing it to November. I've never heard so much unprofessional bullshit. I think they've just written a few ARexx scripts in their life, nothing else. It's very sad that our beloved amiga is dying , but nobody needs such crap talkers.
There's work on another amiga mozilla browser (already posted to mozillazine btw) <http://www.geocities.com/…earchTriangle/Forum/3821/>
