[EDIT] With Release candidate 1 available for download we feel that the requirements of the bounty has been met. As of yesterday (23.07.12) money has been transferred to the Friedens for their great work on this project. We hope to see many more improvements and updates over time[/EDIT]
Donations can still be made directly to the Frieden brothers: http://www.friedenhq.org/ Click the Paypal Donate button. :-)
Timberwolf is the project name of the AmigaOS port of the Firefox web browser (for legal reasons it cannot be called Firefox). Firefox is an award-winning open source web browser and is the de-facto-standard browser across a wide variety of operating system, taking second place in popularity after Microsoft' s Internet Explorer. Its features include tabbed browsing, support for HTML 5, ECMAScript 3.1, and CSS 3, extensibility through addons, and a lot more. In short, Firefox is the most complete open source browser to date.

|Title:||New rendering code for Timberwolf 4.0|
|Text:||As you can see from the screenshot I just uploaded, the new rendering code is in place and seems to work pretty well. Interaction is still somewhat limited since most of the event handling code (keyboard and mouse, redraw based on invalidation etc) is not yet implemented, but the rendering code itself works correctly.
The new implementation is also much more efficient and smaller, it is now only 60 % of the original code size and has the possibility to be fully hardware accelerated (either through the built-in OpenGL layers manager once Mesa is available, or a custom layer manager based on the current compositing capabilities of AmigaOS 4.1).
Stay tuned for more updates and most likely a new test version pretty soon.
