The developer behind TenFourFox, a Firefox re-build that aims to keep support for Mac OS X 10.4 & 10.5 PowerPC-based systems has been thinking about a possible cooperation with other Gecko-based forks. For technical reasons he is unable to create a Firefox variant without the XUL environment. If we decide to cooperate with him we could give him an opportunity to solve this issue while possibly adding Mac expertise to the Pale Moon team. This is badly needed, as can bee seen in the persisting bugs that are still plaguing the Pale Moon Mac build:
Here is what the TenFourFox developer has stated (April 20th, 2017):
source: http://tenfourfox.blogspot.de/2017/04/t ... -back.htmlBy the way, TenFourFox "FPR0" has been successfully uploaded to Github. Build instructions to follow and the first FPR1 beta should be out in about two to three weeks. I'm also cogitating over a blog post discussing not only us but other Gecko forks (SeaMonkey, Pale Moon, etc.) which for a variety of reasons don't want to follow Mozilla into the unclear misty haze of a post-XUL world. To a first approximation our reasons are generally technical and theirs are primarily philosophical, but we both end up doing some of the same work and we should talk about that as an ecosystem. More later.
I believe such a cooperation would be most beneficial for both projects and their respective objectives. Any thoughts?
