New Mozilla Mobile Browser Out

The free Mozilla mobile browser, Minimo, has just been updated to the version 0.2. It is compatible with Windows Mobile 5.0 and is reportedly smaller and faster than previous versions. Minimo is promoted by its creators for its speed in accessing sites and other features such as tabs, better security and widget support. The Minimo project, which isn't a Mozilla Corporation endeavor but is hosted by, was one of the earliest third-party mobile browser initiatives. However, back in the middle of 2004, users were posting questions to the Minimo forum asking if the project was still alive. Now, even after the most recent release, the future of Minimo is unclear.

In late December, Doug Turner, the leader of the project, wrote that he wouldn't be dedicating much time to it in the future.
