Communicator to Ship with Mac OS X

Thursday July 8th, 1999

Waldo has this great news for Macintosh Mozilla users. Waldo writes, "According to MacOSRumors, 'OS X is expected to ship with at least one Web browser (Internet Explorer if Microsoft ports it, Communicator 5 for certain, as well as a trial version of OmniWeb 3.0 quite likely)'.

Cool! Mozilla shipping w/every new Mac 'for certain'. I like it!"


#18 Bundling and the Gecko engine...

Im sure Apple will bundle Comm5 w/ MacOS X, as far as Apple putting it's own GUI on top of the Gecko engine that seems like it might be wasted effort. However I think Apple could do itself and Mozilla a favor if it incorporates the Gecko engine into its HTML help system. This would prevent Apple from having to waste time doing redundant development, but also give Mozilla some additional mindshare, not to mention any recipricoal development Apple could give back based on its implementation and integration.
