SGI and IRIX Firefox 3.0.19 is being beta tested on IRIX. Yeah, I know, Firefox 3.x is really old. But this is a big deal for IRIX users, who have been stuck on Firefox 2.0.22 for years. With this breakthrough, I expect to see 3.5 or 3.6 follow soon. Not sure how much more recent than that can be accomplished.

Are there still any active IRIX users? Wow... nice. I wonder what are the reasons? I never had I chance to use IRIX machine and would definitively like to try just for fun... but other than that - are there any "practical" reasons? As I understand "modern browser support" is not one of them ;)


Come on, this is OSNews.

If there's one thing that we expect from this site, it's a bit of cheerleading for users of obscure and obsolete operating systems.
