Why not base Mozilla on Cocoa (Yellow Box)?
No one wants to write in objective-C.
That's not a cool thing to say.
Yes, I like Objective-C... developing with Cocoa and WebObjects in Obj-C is like butter!
A more truthful answer would have been "there's no point in not using the Carbon code for the front-end, since it works."
Unfortunately, Fizzilla is now tied to PPC hardware. When MacOS X for Intel comes out <cough> it won't be a straight port, unless they bring Carbon to OS X Intel.
I'm hoping now that the GNUstep people will create a GNUstep FE to Mozilla that could be used on MacOS X. Yes, I'm a dreamer!
