Mozilla & Gecko clones Over at BeBits there's some buzz as people download and try out a modded up version of Firefox titled QuickFox. "QuickFox is a 'mod' of mozilla/firefox bleeding edge. From order of importance: speed, useability, looks, reliability. It runs and loads in a RAM filesystem. It sports a fully automatic installation that will take care of everything for you. It includes auto setup on boot and shutdown to save your settings." Thanks to HaikuNews for pointing this out. As you are probably aware of by now, QuickFox is BeOS-only.

I miss BeOS

BeOS is a beautiful thing, but it is too beautiful to sit on one of my computers and be useless. If only someone could do something with BeOS similar to the GeoBook...

Use older hardware (R5 ran on my K6-2 350 I used to have very nicely) and build a machine that costs around $100, put BeOS 5 on it, QuickFox, AbiWord, and a few other apps get WiFi working with it (nothing fancy just whatever cheapo card you want to include with the machine) and put it on the market.

There are plenty of people that would go for something like that.
