New browser project for Mac OS 9?
« on: January 04, 2022, 10:50:28 AM »
Hello, I was looking at the RetroZilla browser for Windows 9x, and they have working TLS1.1/1.2 on the old Mozilla codebase (which is what Classilla is forked from). I was thinking it may be possible to backport this code into Classilla.
However, they changed about 2,500 lines of code in order to achieve this, and I doubt it will be a simple copy-and-paste job either as RetroZilla uses a lot of C++ and (as far as I'm aware) Classilla is all C. It will be quite an undertaking.

Is anyone interested in working on such a project? The source code will be up on GitHub so anyone who is interested can contribute their changes.

I was thinking of calling this new Classilla fork "Kaiju" as Classilla is a is a portmanteau between Classic and Mozilla, and Mozilla is a portmanteau of Mosaic and Godzilla, with Godzilla being a Kaiju, which is a class of mythical Japanese monster.

Thank you for reading my post. :)

EDIT: Here is the TLS 1.2 commit from RetroZilla for those who are interested: https://github.com/rn10950/RetroZilla/commit/bb6b8a03fa89e6f745ef86148691a381ef1afe25
