port to i386
this might be oot. but imho this browser is best suited to run on legacy computers with very low ram (pentium3/64mb) which is still lots of it on third world countries. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:58, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
The link to the projectpage is not working, but i cannot find a new link either, did mozilla cancel the project?
- Yes it looks like the Minimo project has ceased. This is quoted from the Mobile FAQ on the mozilla wiki:
Minimo was a project that was driven by Chris Hoffman and Doug Turner inside of Mozilla to build a browser for a few select mobile devices. It included a simple UI and was a good learning experience. However, we've decided to build a more formal product and strategy around Mobile.
Cleared up the "Criticism" section so that it sounds like it was written by someone who actually speaks English. --Starkruzr 03:40, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

I deleted the entire Criticism section:
Probably due to the fact that it is still in the early stages of development, the Windows Mobile version of Minimo performs rather poorly.
The quality of rendered pages is congruent with the well-respected layout engine it implements (Gecko), but the program has very high memory and hardware requirements compared to what is typically available on most handheld platforms (e.g. 64 megabytes of RAM, 206–624 MHz ARM-compatible CPU).
Version 0.016 (~8 MB CAB installation; Windows Mobile 4.2 + 5.0) and Version 0.2 (~4 MB CAB installation; Windows Mobile 5.0 only) are not recommendable for end-users not used to running "bleeding edge" software. In this version the browser may make the Windows Mobile OS unstable and a soft-reset may be required to make the system work again.
The Version 0.2 is recommended for developers working in Mobile platform and with interest in AJAX and Web Services driven Web application for the mobile space. Minimo renders applications like Gmail and is a great space to build cases and improve the mobile experience.
