Anyone seen this and know if it will allow a port to MorphOS?
I just saw it too and was wondering if this might be something useful, now that it appears that Odyssey has hit a significant snag with the Endian problem in the Webkit engine.
I don't even know what rendering engine Firefox/Timberwolf uses, so maybe it has the same problem.
Wouldn't it be a wonderful thing if some MorphOS developers took the existing Timberwolf code and made it actually work (much better), while porting it to MorphOS? We all know how important it is to have a good web browser for our platform, as any OS that doesn't have a decent browser is either only useful for specialized tasks, like embedded devices in cars, or other machinery.
I hope that Odyssey can find a way forward for MorphOS on PPC, but if not, maybe a new and fixed Timberwolf would be an option.
