Embedding an app, and using it in Ride Runner, seems to be spot on with the Ride Runner forums actually. That would be like saying iGuidance, Phoco, iGo ect should not be posted about in the RR forums.

    I would argue that mentioning Linux support is limited, as far as using LinuxICE, (Another front end entirely) has far less to to with RR, all things considered

    AFIAK, RR has support for embedding *any* app, not just Firefox. Futhermore, the original poster even mentioned:
    I know it doesn't necessary regard rr...
    I'm not saying fennec shouldn't be posted here. Specific Fennec integration into RR should be discussed here. However, Fennec can potentially be used with *any* frontend, and that's why I would suggest possibly making threads like this outside of the RR sub-forum where it would be more widely seen and thus more useful to everybody. Just a thought.

    As for mentioning LinuxICE, yes it has nothing to do with RR, you are correct. However, I feel that as one that has been outside the matrix, it is my obligation to also attempt to free your minds as well. (Joke only)

    Mozilla has traditionally had excellent support for Linux. They publish nightly install packages of their latest alpha and beta builds. Support for Linux often exceeds that of windows. So when a comment was made that fennec support was bad for windows, I felt it appropriate to say support for fennec builds in general are bad (unless you happen to be running a Linux based nokia n900).

    Moreover, Firefox is considered by many to be a "starter drug" along with other apps like OpenOffice to introduce people to OpenSource concepts and eventually, to Linux .

    As good as this looks, the dev team appear to be aiming this at windows mobile.

    This caught my eye = "While the desktop versions of Fennec are not supported products, they are a great way to familiarize yourself with the Fennec UI, provide feedback, build add-ons, or even localize it to your native language"

    I hope they don't plan to forget this version when they release a final.

    Well said, and that makes perfect sense for sure. I certainly meant no disrespect or anything, just a little OS banter is fun to join in on now and then

    For me, if there was a RR Linux port, that would then be a perfect world! Linux is free, stable and fast..... many things that windows is not

    Oh, and yes... I have FireFox as well as Open Office installed here in my systems..... as well as Gimp

    I also hope that it contines to be supported on the Windows desktop environment. Actually it works quite well in it's present state, other than the error message that you have to click ok to when you start it. I would tend to agree with Mitch, that is is something in the beta for error trapping and such. As soon as that is "turned off" I think the Win version is perfect in its present state.

    Fennec for windows is awesome. This should really come pre installed in streetdeck and other front ends. It's clearly just what you need on a carPC. I just need adobe flash to start working!

    I dont know about pinching, but it does support swipes. Swipe right on the screen to access bookmarks, swipe left to get to settings.

    It doesn't support multi-touch because Maemo 5 doesn't support it
    And probably even when Maemo 6 will be released , I guess it won't support multi-touch on Windows because only 7 supports it - So don't get your hopes up

    Here is the link to the latest version :

    I gotta say, that's impressive and just what I have been waiting for on a touchscreen PC. It works flawlessly on my Win7 box indoors. Have to carry it out to the truck and try it after I fix the water leak :/
