And Firefox will keep up with the web anyway, almost without additional work from Peter Naulls. So most of his work will probably go into making the RISC OS version look and feel more like a RISC OS application.
As for Flash support, there are two possible ways to get that with Firefox on RISC OS. One way would be to obtain the source from Macromedia, wich IIRC is granted for free to non-commercial developers under NDA. The more desireable way would be to support the GPLFlash2 project: [link] It aims for Flash 7 compatability.

RISC OS 5 pictured running on ARM Cortex-A8 kit Picture exclusive - This grainy photograph shows a port of RISC OS 5, sourced from the RISC OS Open project, running on a Beagleboard - a device powered by a 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor with a built-in graphics chip. The port, developed by Jeffrey Lee with help from Uwe Kall and ROOL staff, is seen as a major breakthrough for the shared-source project as it proves the OS can be ported to new hardware without the need for a large team of engineers. 75 comments, latest by rjek on 30/4/09 3:15PM.
