A new version of Fizzilla is available for download from the Mozilla Organization’s Web site. Fizzilla is the Mozilla Organization’s implementation of a carbonized version of Mozilla designed to run on Mac OS X.
Mozilla is an open source Web browser designed for standards compliance, performance and portability. The effort itself was formed out of Netscape Corp.’s decision to make its Netscape Communicator Web browser’s source code available.
Developed from the codebase originally used for Netscape Communicator, Mozilla has been created to support a variety of different operating systems. Supported operating systems include Mac OS, Windows, and various implementations of Linux and UNIX.
Fizzilla incorporates support for Apple’s Carbon 1.2 specification, making it possible to run on Mac OS X, or Mac OS 9 configurations equipped with the CarbonLib 1.2.x system library.
