On Firefox 2 install guide published:

Sadly, it hasn't characterized much, except for slicing and dicing comments in a purely journalistic attempt to get a response and pit people against each other, rather than any real concern for RISC OS - there are plenty of examples of this in articles here. For this reason, I won't comment on the specifics here.

Drobe commenting system wouldn't let me quote the line in question, but I've said nothing anywhere about machines not powering up. In any case, I won't comment further on this issue here - contact me directory.

On Iyonix-only Firefox 2 port released online:

Jwoody: you can stand by it all you want, but it's clearly wrong for reasons I already stated. I'm glad you feel it's ok to dismiss those reasons out of hand. Meanwhile, the incompleteness of any version has little to do with ChoX11, which just provides raw X11 functionality and no more.

On Iyonix-only Firefox 2 port released online:

Ah yes, looking back through drobe comments, you've made a number of confused and incorrect comments about porting and ChoX11, and seem to have some kind of unspecified beef about it. Why, I fear we will hear in too much detail shortly.
