Platforms

I've been very happy using SeaMonkey on my Windows based machines for years.

Now I've obtained a smart phone, primarily for internet access using 3G 
or 4G when I am traveling.  It runs on Android.  The clerk at the store 
said it would run any browser, but when I went to the SeaMonkey site, I 
could find only versions for windows or linux.  Is there some way I can 
get this phone to run SeaMonkey?  They keep talking about Apps, but as I 
have aged I have not kept up with technology, and don't even know what 
those are.

The short of it is: the clerk lied.

There are indeed several browsers for Android, but not all of them. Just
to stay on the Big Five, Internet Explorer and Safari are not available
for Android and probably never will be, since Microsoft and Apple prefer
pushing their own platforms. Chrome is, but only if you have a phone
running a recent version of Android (4.0 or greater). Even Firefox won't
run in the very cheapest phones.

Android comes with a Webkit-based browser -- a ho-hum one called just
"Browser" in most versions, and a version of Google Chrome in the most
recent releases. Most other browsers for Android are also Webkit-based,
like the rather good Dolphin Browser, and most leverage the built-in
Webkit engine.

Firefox and Opera, however, have their own engines (Gecko for Firefox,
Presto for Opera), with all the pluses and minus that it entails.

The closest thing to Seamonkey that you can currently get for Android
would be Firefox. It uses the same rendering engine (Gecko) and has the
ability to synchronize bookmarks, history, passwords and such between
mobile and desktop browser (either Firefox or Seamonkey), using the
Firefox Sync service. But it does not include a mail/news reader; you
have to rely on other Android apps for those.

Supported Platforms?
So I have a current installation of IDM 3.6.1 running on Red Hat 5.7. I was looking to upgrade IDM to 4.0.1. I see in the documentation (http://www.novell.com/documentation/idm401/idm_integrated_install/?page=/documentation/idm401/idm_integrated_install/data/bro1b8d.html) that it list RH 5.4 as supported and RH 6.0. I figured RH 5.4 was the most recent minor release of RH 5 at the time the documentation was released. So I figured that versions of RH 5 past RH 5.4 would work, but it seems that was not the case. Is RH 5.7 not supported at all for IDM 4.0.1? When I tried laun...

Platform support for Client
We are planning a mixed OS platform system where we would like to use ASE. The Server will most likely be running on a PPC-Linux OS, or a Solaris OS. Both of which are supported. The clients however will be sitting on a LynxOS 3.1 (at least for a while). In reviewing the Web page I do not see any mention of Support for LynxOS. Is this true? Are there any other options which we might employ to work arround this? We've thought about writing a proxy, which would hold a supported client else where on the system, but our real need is for the LynxOS processes to hold a loc...
