Mozilla's Firefox 3.0b2 (Official) for OS/2 has been released

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From: Sander Nyman <>

Mozilla's Firefox 3.0b2 (Official) for OS/2 has been released. This is a
BETA release of Firefox 3, the next generation browser based on Mozilla's
Gecko 1.9 platform. It should be used for testing and feedback purposes
only. Take a moment to review the information and suggestions in the
README.TXT file included in the archive. Some Extensions (Add-ons) may not
yet be updated to work with Firefox 3. If you are looking to add new
Extensions, you can check the Add-ons site using the link below to see if
they are compatible with version 3.

You can download it here:

NOTE: This release requires the C runtime DLLs from Innotek. In the
unlikely event that you do not already have version 0.6.3 installed, it is
available with an installer here:

NOTE: This release requires IPLUGINW.DLL to use the Java and Flash
plugins. Available here:
or here:

NOTE: To have both Firefox, & Thunderbird in use at the same time (or ANY
other Mozilla app) they *MUST* be at the SAME version level, or a
mismatched DLL will still be in memory when you attempt to start a second
Mozilla based program. The easiest way to get around this limitation, and
use DIFFERENT version levels of Firefox, Thunderbird, Kompozer, etc., is
with Rich Walsh's Run! utility. It is tiny, and VERY easy to set up. To
make life even easier, I HIGHLY recommend that you download & use the
Internet Application Integration utility from Chuck McKinnis, which
actually contains the Run! utility, and sets it up for you, along with
coordinating your web browser with your email client for "mailto" links,
etc. You can find it here:

Or, if you'd rather do it yourself, here is the Run! utility:

Firefox extensions (add-ons) that add new functionality are available here:

Firefox themes (skins) are available here:

Gnash para OS/2 y eComStation: GNU Flash Movie Player

From: Paul smedley <>

Hi All,

I've updated the OS/2 & eComStation build of Gnash at my website at to reflect the latest cvs code as at 2007-07-13.

For those that don't know what Gnash is, from

Gnash is a GNU Flash movie player. Previously, it was only possible to play flash movies with proprietary software. While there are some other free flash players, none support anything beyond SWF v4. Gnash is based on GameSWF, and supports many SWF v7 features.

A plugin for Firefox is also planned when time permits.

The OS/2 port of Gnash is the subject of an OS/2 World Bounty - see for more details.



Runs standalone
Gnash can run standalone to play flash movies.
Browser plugin
Gnash can also run as a plugin from within most Mozilla derived browsers, such as Firefox. Gnash also has support for Konqueror.
SWF v7+ compliant
Gnash can play many current flash movies.
Streaming Video
Gnash supports the viewing of streaming video from popular video sharing sites like or
XML Message server
Gnash also supports an XML based message system as documented in the Flash Format specification.
High Quality Output
Gnash uses OpenGL for rendering the graphics on the desktop, and AntiGrain (AGG) for embedded framebuffer only devices.
Free Software
Gnash is 100% free software. For more information on the GPL, go to the Free Software Foundation web site.
Better Security
Gnash pays extra attention to all network connections, and allows the user to control access.
Gnash supports extending ActionScript by creating your own. You can write wrappers for any development library, and import them into the player.
