    bitwiseworks has started its latest porting project, bringing an updated Firefox and Thunderbird to the eCS (OS/2) platform.

    The project will be entirely open source. Source code and progress can
    be found at

    As with previous big projects (like Qt GUI framework, Java 6, Flash)
    funding is required to ensure a steady progress at a reasonal speed.
    Partial funding was already provided by several companies and
    individuals, with Mensys BV being the main sponsor. But in order to have
    the project updated in a reasonable timeframe, we need more sponsoring.

    If you are interested in sponsoring this project, please contact Silvan Scherrer (silvan dot scherrer at bitwiseworks dot com) directly or alternatively buy sponsoring units.
    Sponsoring units may be bought at Mensys. *100%* of that money will be transferred to the developers.

    The Mensys sponsor link is: http://www.mensys.com/shop/NetlabsJava6

    Right now we do not have a separate link for Mozilla development -
    however the persons behind Java and Mozilla projects are the same,
    Dmitriy Kuminov doing development and Silvan Scherrer doing project
