IBM to support Firefox browser on Domino

IBM will support the Firefox browser on the next version of its Lotus Domino personal information management system.

IBM will support the Firefox browser on the next version of its Lotus Domino personal information management system.
The measure was part of a raft of announcements in support of open-source software that IBM made at the Linuxworld conference in San Francisco.
The planned version of Lotus Domino, which is scheduled for a late summer launch, will support Firefox 1.0 and the Mozilla browser. Since its launch last autumn, Firefox has been downloaded more than 75 million times, according to Mozilla.org.
IBM is also developing a Linux plug-in for its Lotus Notes personal information management system. When the company releases the plug-in early next year, Notes users will be able to run the application on a Linux desktop simply by doubleclicking to launch.
The supplier’s vice-president for workplace, portal and collaboration software, Ken Bisconti, said, “The market continues to look for new ways to extend the performance and cost benefits of Linux to the client side. These new offerings add to the line-up of technology that customers can use to build the front end of their Linux computing solution.”
