Linux Labs Releases Advanced Browser For Wireless Palm OS(R) Platform; New Linux-based Browser Fills Palm OS(R) Void

Apr 05, 2002, 00:00 ET from Linux Labs

    ATLANTA, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Linux Labs, the world leader in
 global shared memory Linux-based supercomputers, is restoring to the wireless
 Palm PDA community a sorely needed component, the web browser.
     For the last nine months, wireless Palm users have been without a web
 browser after the demise of their only wireless web surfing application from a
 company that fell victim to the DotCom fallout.  Now, Vagabond(TM) and its
 product line use an Open Source style license for both client and server that
 permits users to run their own CGI gateway instead of remaining dependent on
 another company, while preventing a single point of  failure.
     The new browser is extremely fast, has many new features, and is available
 for beta download as of today.  Vagabond's features include color support,
 HTML, WAP, i-mode, cookies, SSL, bookmark editing and exporting, hot-search,
 browser emulation mode i.e. IE5, Mozilla, etc.), a bypass gateway mode (web
 clipping only), editable gateway and home page, graphics on/off mode change by
 button, an advanced toolbar & history (toggleable), auto-fill in of URL
 prefix/suffixes, and selectable clipping size per page.
     The server-side of the application runs in Perl and MySQL and will be
 offered for both individual use and enterprise development.  Linux Labs will
 be offering both server collocation for the server-side process, as well as
 shared hosting of the CGI/Perl on its shared Debian GNU/Linux Hostuniverse
 hosting system.  The OpenMobility development team will be offering service
 contracts and development work for the software as well as engineering
 services of e-commerce and wireless databases.
