bitwiseworks starts new project to port Mozilla (Firefox/Thunderbird) to eCS (OS/2)
April 21, 2013 by firstname.lastname@example.org
bitwiseworks has started its latest porting project, bringing an updated
Firefox and Thunderbird to the eCS (OS/2) platform.
The project will be entirely open source. Source code and progress can
be found at
As with previous big projects (like Qt GUI framework, Java 6, Flash)
funding is required to ensure a steady progress at a reasonal speed.
Partial funding was already provided by several companies and
individuals, with Mensys BV being the main sponsor. But in order to have
the project updated in a reasonable timeframe, we need more sponsoring.
If you are interested in sponsoring this project, please contact Silvan
Scherrer (silvan dot scherrer at bitwiseworks dot com) directly or
alternatively buy sponsoring units.
Sponsoring units may be bought at Mensys. *100%* of that money will be
transferred to the developers.
The Mensys sponsor link is: www.mensys.com/shop/NetlabsJava6
Right now we do not have a separate link for Mozilla development -
however the persons behind Java and Mozilla projects are the same,
Dmitriy Kuminov doing development and Silvan Scherrer doing project
