Mozilla Firefox for Amiga

Hi!

I'd like to know, whether the Amiga Mozilla project (AmiZilla ..??!)
is still going on ?

Or has it already been given up ?

If yes, then it's really a shame. ;-(

It's still going on, albeit in a slow, zombie-like way, not unlike the speed of the Pitch Drop Experiment.

Well put! It beggars belief how one lone coder (Peter Naulls) ported Mozilla to RISC OS over a few years in his spare time without any financial incentive, but we can't get Amiga coders to do it for a small bounty. Naulls has since gone on, with the aid of monetary contributions from the RISC OS community, to port Firefox 1.5/2.x and Thunderbird to the platform in the space of 2 years. Incredible! Not that I'm underestimating the enormity of the task or could do better, but it kind of puts the efforts of the coding team working on the Amiga port into perspective
