AmiZilla Project Continues to Grow

Saturday June 7th, 2003

David Gates (davidATdiscreetfx.com) writes in with an update on the AmiZilla project, which aims to raise a bounty for the first person or team to port Mozilla to Amiga OS. Since we last reported on the effort, the pot has grown to $3,661 and an AmiZilla FAQ and a set of AmiZilla guidelines have been created. In addition, an AmiZilla marketing campaign has been launched to gain publicity for the project and an AmiZilla Yahoo! Group has been set up to help coders collaborate on the port. Finally, the German Amiga Arena site has interviewed Bill Panagouleas, the founder of the project, with some AmiZilla-specific questions towards the end of the article.

I thought the fastest Amiga hardware was based on the 68030 chip that runs at like 40MHz. It's not something I've really paid any attention to though. Were there more hardware offerings for the Amiga platform after the early 1990's? I'm sure some Googling would turn stuff up, but I just can't be bothered on a Sunday afternoon with 35 degree weather!

Is it still graphics and games like in the 80's/early 90's? Are there many programs available for it? Is it owned by a private company? Open source? Do any EOMs build for it? Just courious. It was a fun machine back in the Commador days.


IS it a good idea

Hi!

I really wonder if porting Mozilla on Amiga is a good idead !

1. It will be very hard, very long ! 2. AWeb (an OpenSource AmigaOS browser) needs devellopers 3. Improving AWeb faster (to develop and to use). 4. Mozilla is dannn slow compare to others Amiga browser
