Amiga & AROS After much, much development, the developers behind AmigaOS 4 have released the first alpha of Timberwolf, the AmigaOS 4 port of the Firefox web browser. I tried it out on my Amiga, and indeed confirmed that this is very much alpha material.

Any new browser such as OWB or Firefox has two benefits:

1. More choice
- there are pros/cons to each browser

2. Improves the underlying operating system
- OS4 has already been updated to support some of
the requirements for Firefox. Undoubtedly some
bugs have been found and squashilated as well.

In general, there browsers are helping the OS4 platform evolve, become more robust and move towards the goal of being suitable for your primary desktop OS.

More than likely porting Firefox has in some way benefitted OWB as well.
