Bezilla: Mozilla for BeOS
The Bezilla Project is a continued effort to bring Mozilla/Firefox to the BeOS platform. The primary goal of this project is to ensure that the BeOS and its successors, including but not limited to Haiku and ZETA, have a mainstream free web browser that conforms to modern open web standards.
- Bezilla Development Blog: blog used by Bezilla developers mainly for development and testing
- Mozilla Firefox: download page for the current stable build of Firefox for BeOS/ZETA from the Bezilla Team
- Mozilla SeaMonkey: download page of Mozilla Web Suite/Browser on bebits.com.
- Mozilla Firefox - Bleeding Edge: download page of bleeding edge releases of Firefox for BeOS/ZETA, mainly intended for testing.
- HaikuFox - Firefox Theme: Firefox theme that provides matching OS integration to BeOS users.
