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.

Because it's so cool to work on old, clunky, outdated piece of code, like Solaris, IRIX, AIX, HP-UX OS ...

Why not PDP-11? that would be even more retro. Custom OS, custom hardware. Yeah!
