OH MY GOD! YOU SAY GODZILLA HAS BEEN RELEASED?!! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES PEOPLE RUN!!!
Although it makes sense to start small with the port of Mozilla, it's not real clear what can be stripped from Mozilla. The Mozilla developers themselves said that it's pretty hard to isolate Gecko itself, as the technologies depend on so many different things - most of Mozilla, in fact. There are, however, various /test directories in the Mozilla tree that could probably help an engineer do isolated test compiles.
Because the AmigaDE is more Linux-ish than it is Windows-ish, Kevin Croombs of Tao convinced me that it makes sense to start with a port of the Linux version of Mozilla when porting it. In this way, the Linux makefiles and cross scripts can be used to start the AmigaDE long enough to compile Amiga binaries and then exit. This can't happen, however, until:
* 1. CC, CXX, and AR to the Amiga cross scripts are retargeted (details should be in the mailing list archives).
* 2. An AmigaDE case is added into Mozilla's main configure.in file so that Mozilla knows what the heck to do with AmigaDE.
* 3. A Mozilla compile is attempted, breaks, and the problems are fixed.
* 4. The lizard compiles.
* 5. Once Amiga is a presence in the consumer market again, we beg Netscape to take the project and make it a tier-1 platform. Amiga Inc. is actually ramping up now: Sharp and Psion are two companies that are already starting to release the Amiga DE on PDAs, and the AmigaOne PPC-based computer is due this summer.

I would really like to see a port of Mozilla for Amiga!
That would be great!
I am enjoying Mozilla 1.0 so far. I really like a lot of the features!
