Firefox updates - June 12th, 2008

Two information on the Firefox field:

  1. If you feel like you are a beta tester, there is a pre release of Firefox and Thunderbird for use with Haiku (ore R5 BONE).
  2. Firefox as well as thunderbird uses what’s called the NetScape Portable Runtime (NSRP). This modules provides an OS independent API for Threads, Threads synchronization, I/O, Network addresses, Time, Memory management and Linking. There is a post on BeZilla covering the tentative to rewrite that library optimized for Haiku. Also discussed is the question to drop support for BeOS and Zeta.
  3. Firefox will not be the only browser for Haiku. Indeed, Fran├žois mmu_man Revol is porting NetSurf on to Haiku. The port is already working in Zeta as you can see on this screenshot.
