Minimo is no longer being actively developed:


DougT and the Mozilla Organisation apparently have big ideas for it's replacement, something called "Mobile Companion", I can only hope it's development is less shambolic than that of Minimo.

I personally don't agree with their reasons for not continuing with Minimo - it's pretty clear they were struggling to get it to work on the mobile phone platform, however the Internet Tablet platform should be perfect for Minimo.

Antonio did a great job bringing Minimo to the 770, I wouldn't blame him if he didn't continue though.

It would be great if Nokia picked up the Minimo pieces, or ported their S60 browser to the Internet Tablet thus breaking the dependency on closed-source Opera.
