Open-source browser due for Palm

Linux Labs has released a beta-test version of a Web browser for wireless-enabled Palm handhelds, seeking to fill a gap left by the recent closure of Digital Paths and its DPWeb mobile browser. The software, which includes a server-side component, is based on an open-source license. The Vagabond browser relies, like DPWeb, on a CGI gateway that speeds up Web page downloads. But its open-source license allows users to run their own gateway, eliminating the risk of the gateway provider going out of business. The DPWeb software does not work without a connection to Digital Paths' servers. The browser is designed for wireless Palms like the Palm VII, VIIx or 705, but will work with any Palm handheld that has a recent version of the operating system and the Web Clipping libraries installed.
