Announcement   Announcement : Project: TIMBERWOLF - Bounty for already in progress AmigaOS 4.1 port of Firefox
   posted by Cyborg on 29-Sep-2009 16:53:08 (52812 reads)
Project Timberwolf


Finally the port of one of the most wanted software for
AmigaOS 4.1 has been tackled! The well known AmigaOS developers
Hans-Joerg Frieden and Thomas Frieden work already since
quite some time on a fully AmigaOS native port of Mozillas'
Firefox webbrowser!


Because of the unrealistic terms and conditions of the AmiZilla
bounty, it was decided to start a new bounty only for AmigaOS 4.1
and beyond. Thus this bounty is in no way related to AmiZilla.

Timberwolf is the project name of the AmigaOS port of the Firefox web
browser (for legal reasons it cannot be called Firefox). Firefox is an
award-winning open source web browser and is the de-facto-standard
browser across a wide variety of operating system, taking second place
in popularity after Microsoft' s Internet Explorer. Its features include
tabbed browsing, support for HTML 5, ECMAScript 3.1, and CSS 3,
extensibility through addons, and a lot more. In short, Firefox is the
most complete open source browser to date.

This will be great news when it is available espeically if it integrates with GNash.

Perhaps the team can make a statement as to whether they plan on making available to other Amiga flavours, ie, Aros, MorphOS and 68k if possible. If that is the case then others can increase the bounty to make the extra work worth it.

Wow!

So that was the famous secret project.
For sure, ambitious.

Too bad, the Amizilla bounty can not be used.

@clusteruk

I think you'll find on the bounty page that not all source will be made available to others. Or at least does not need to be made available, according to the Mozilla license. I very much think this will be OS4.1 only.

If it was anybody else I would think the project would never actually see the light of day, but with these two I have faith it will actually happen.

Without a doubt. The Friedens just keep on rolling. The community is really lucky to have two not just super talented, but very upstanding people supporting us.

@mpiva

I also have total confidence in the brothers work and ability to deliver.

There's no deadline for this bounty but we will do all we can to keep the project site up-to-date. Check http://www.amigabounty.net/?function=viewfiles&projectid=44 to see screenshots of the current state.

Actually, no. This has nothing to do with Hyperion and the "most ambitious project". It's just a pet project Thom and me have been doing in our spare time.

I hope it would be totally integrated with AmigaOS unique features (Datatypes, Arexx...etc, etc)

As far as it is possible, yes. We'd like to have AmigaOS-native menus for example (Mozilla allows native menus), we'll have to see what else can be supported. I suppose that a lot of things can be added via Addons/Plugins (Like an AREXX port for example).

@Rogue

And the speed?
Do we really have the hardware power for it?

point being, the latest versions of FF crawls on dual-core x86's at 2-3 Ghz.

FF has become everything it was supposed to avoid, when the Firebird was forked out from Mozilla once upon a time.

(I was expecting this because of what Rogue said on amigans.net some time ago and there hasn't been updates to OWB recently.)

Wow, and that might have even been worthy of the ambitious secret project title. That's great news guys, thank you so much

/me runs off to make a donation

I am with tomazkid about the important question: Speed.

Will scrolling fast as owb for example ? Will be hardware support for the rendering ? I am sure, that Rogue and others know what they to do, but maybe if OWB will faster, then better spend that activy to make OWB port better ? (just a imho of course).

Will be cool to see some test-binary soon :)

Well IceWeasel always ran okay on my AmigaOne under Debian. So why not? Generally amigaos feels faster (to me) than linux on the same machine so I would be optimistic.
