Yes, there are many Pocket PC users out there who would prefer to use a Mozilla based web browser, instead of the included Pocket Internet Explorer (now renamed to Internet Explorer Mobile) and it looks as Minimo, I've reported about before, makes some good progress.
At least it was released in (Beta) version 007 now and includes some serious improvements and fixes.

Major items addressed:

  • This implements NPAPI plugin support
  • First cut a tab browser interface for PPC
  • Xul progress meter bar in url bar while loading pages
  • Significant footprint and performance improvements. 75% the size of 006 with no feature loss

Also (since I haven't installed it yet) there are some new promising screenshots available:, notice the progress meter:

Yes, Google Maps works in Minimo. That would be Slashdot in another tab in the background:

Version 007 is available for free public download now from DougT's Ramblings Minimo project page.

Cheers ~ Arne
