Minimo (Mini Mozilla) Project : Windows Mobile Browser

By Posted 2005 Updated   Tips

Minimo is a free, open-source web browser for Windows Mobile (Also called Windows CE, Pocket PC 2000, 2002, 2003, and 2003se) and is based on the Mozilla codebase. It is small, fast and easy to use, and offers many advantages over Pocket Internet Explorer, such as tabs, spatial navigation and more.

Defining the scope of the Minimo Project, their website says

“We hope to make Minimo the browser of choice on small devices, or machines with limited system resources; 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.”

“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.”
