Title:Project: Timberwolf
[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.
Bounty:6732.720000000002 EUR   Out of 7063.69 EUR originally submitted.

Title:Getting closer
Text:As you can see in the new screenshot, we are getting closer to having a usable Timberwolf 4. Even though it currently is only using pure software rendering (for drawing and composition), it's become usable, and already better than the original alpha version of 3.5 that we released previously.

Stability is OK, although not great yet (sadly, the browser was just crashed when I made the screenshot of the WebM video). Speed is still an issue, although a recent non-debug build is actually usable, even for script and graphics heavy websites.

So in essence, we're close to releasing a new test version. I don't want to give a date, though, since the speed at which I progress depends on too many factors.

Stay tuned for more updates.
