Mozilla browser for Linux Pocket PC
The Minimo (Mini Mozilla) project is focused on code-size and runtime footprint reduction, and porting to small consumer devices. The team behind the development hopes to make Minimo the browser of choice on small devices, or machines with limited system resources by taking advantage of Mozilla's support for a broad and comprehensive set of standards and the variety of content on the web, proven security, international support, and cross platform capability.

Minimo v0.1 is the first public preview release of a small device browser. According to the content in the developer's site, the software have been tested on Familiar 0.7.2 unstable running GPE on IPAQs 5555 and 38xx. The software is part of the Handhelds.org unstable feed currently.

For end users, the same browser you are used to running on your desktop and laptop will be available in a slimmed down form on your palmtop, but it will have full support for accessing the variety of content you are used to viewing. For content developers, the same set of standards based rich content can now be extended to a number of new users accessing the web over wireless handheld devices.

The software is based on the the 1.7a Mozilla codebase, implements https for secure browsing and include SmallDevice layout optimizations.
