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!"

Your correct. The Mac version of Mozilla will utilize Mac API's, regardless of how "Unix'y" MacOS X is. By utilizing the MacOS API's Mozilla will run on MacOS 8.x or MacOS X. Any program that uses either of these two sets of API's or the Cocoa API's on MacOS X will be utilizing MacOS X's own windowing system referred to as Quartz. As a related question to this discussion does anyone know which Mac API set Mac Mozilla is using or planning to use, Classic or Carbon?
