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.

I think the most shocking thing about that screenshot (for a long time Amiga user like me) is seeing a menu in the browser window. That is so un-Amiga. On Amiga, every application has its menu in hidden in the screen titlebar, accessed by right-mouse-button (a nice feature, wasting no screen space). A menu in a window just seems totally wrong on Amiga.

It's probably way too much work to rewrite Firefox to be more Amiga-like. It's nice to have Firefox on Amiga, but it'll never be a "native program".
