Mimimo, Mozilla Browser – Windows CE developers needed…

Doug Turner is looking for some Windows CE development help with the Minimo Mozilla Browser – anyone interested ?

From the Minimo site – Doug says – “Another thing you will notice is the UI for the application is terrible.  I really need your input and windows ce coding skills here.  If you want to take a look at the current code for the application, it  is here: http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/embedding/minimo/wince. “

Are you interested in making the Minimo/Mozilla Windows CE browser better ? – I’m interested to know if you are interested in working on the project, let me know !!

And if you want to help Doug with the project you can make contact here

    Yeah, I’m very interested–especially if it turns out that the IE ActiveX control requires a CE pro license instead of a core license. And I’d be even _more_ interested if it supported a plugin for Flash content.

    However, I’m probably in the minority in that I’d be working on this for x86 CE, not PocketPC. And I’m somewhat bewildered by the chants of people I’ve seen on the newsgroups: "Yes, no IE! Tabbed browsing! XYZ feature, too!"

    Come on, people, we’re talking about a handheld device. Do you _really_ want to try to support tabbed browsing? As a former Palm developer and big fan of the minimalist style on handhelds, I think that these expections are unrealistic. And I’m also a little worried about the emphasis that Mozilla–and hence minimo–makes on browser chrome and such. (Even Firefox is more sluggish than IE.) I think that design style might not carry over to CE very well.

    I’m totally with you on this – I’d really like to see the Minimo browser running on ALL Windows CE devices, not only Pocket PC. This means that the applications needs to be resolution aware, and also be built to run on x86, MIPS, ARM, and SH4 processors.
