Current Booty: $4122.45

http://sourceforge.net/projects/amizilla



New! Offical URL for AmiZilla

http://www.amizilla.org

Mailinglist now has over 162 members and over 240 messages, most are about programming and porting Mozilla.

AmiZilla website has gotten over 1 million hits since appearing on the famous unix geek website slashdot.

AmiZilla continues to gather positive press for the Amiga and MorphOS by being covered on mainstream websites like CNET's news.com, mozillazine.org and many others.

Amiga Inc. representative Fleecy Moss has commented they like AmiZilla but will not contribute to the Initiative because a port is also underway for MorphOS.

New! AmiZilla poster "I Want You" by Eric Schwartz available in two sizes for webmasters that want to promote AmiZilla on their site.

New! AmiZilla Banner designed by Luca Ferraris.

New! Female Russian artist hired to create mascot for MorphOS version of Mozilla port.

New! Genesi and Phoenix Developer Consortium have been watching the project with great interest for some time. and may contribute funds.

Keep in mind that the AmiZilla Project needs you to be successful. The booty is now over $4122, which is a impressive amount of money for an Amiga project. If only one programmer was working on the port this would be a nice reward. However several programmers are working together. Once the money is split among coders the booty is not big enough. Please contribute if you can, every dollar helps motivate programmers to make the AmiZilla Project a success. After the release of AmiZilla more projects are being developed like Hot CoCo (JVM) and F Gordon (Flash). The development and launch of these add-ons to AmiZilla depend on the success of that project. Paypal donations can be sent in via this weblink.

About AmiZilla

The goal of the AmiZilla effort is to raise such an obscene/huge amount of money to give away to the first programmer/team that can port Mozilla to Amiga/Compatible systems that programmers will be falling over themselves getting this application coded in record time.

I believe Fleecy gave a different reason than stated above.

The main reason was that Amiga already has a project in the pipeline for AmigaOS4.1 and IMO it goes without saying that with regard to any funding projects by the AmigaOS4 team deserve absolute priority at this stage,

Hmm, yes a little too selective of his words i must say.

I choosed not to contribute, i found the project to be very diffuse and full of loopholes.

Any other app funding projects ?
