    Re: Firefox coming to mobile!

    Unfortunately, I don't think this is going to be a J2ME-based browser (read: usable on BB). The entire Firefox codebase is written in C++. Their plan is to make all future decisions with mobile platforms in mind, meaning that after some initial porting work the hope is that all future Firefox versions, with perhaps a tiny bit of tweaking, will work on mobile platforms as well. That doesn't sound to me like they're planning a J2ME rewrite.

    Re: Firefox coming to mobile!

    Sorry, I didn't mean to come off that way, I was just trying to inject some perspective. I read the blog posting and there were no mentions of J2ME and, as a programmer that works on a large product, I can tell you that porting a codebase the size of Firefox's to an entirely different platform and language is an incredible undertaking (not to mention the fact that they'd be maintaining two separate, but equally massive codebases). The impression I got from reading the posting was that the developers want to modify the Firefox codebase to make it mobile-friendly. I.e., get it to such a point that the mobile version of Firefox is just another build target in much the same way as a Mac or Linux build is.
