In reply to Andrew Rawnsley: I'm not sure how relevant your comment is. Whilst RISC OS Adjust on Virtual RiscPC may be the fastest way to run RISC OS, users of such a system are hardly starved of choice of a decent browser. I can't see the massive draw of wanting to run Firefox on such a system when with a quick press of alt-enter you can run the Windows version at 10 times the speed with full flash, shockwave, java, media, etc... Whilst it might be nice to have, it's not as essential as having it running on a native system.

As far as native hardware goes, the Iyonix is still the current fastest machine available and from the announcement on the Firefox page on riscos.info it would appear that decent performance can be expected on the Iyonix if sufficient funding is found. I too would like to know why the A9home version has to be considered separately to the Iyonix version (and the RiscPC for that matter), but these are questions that only Peter can answer.

I'm sure Peter will keep the Firefox page on Riscos.info updated. Cheers!
