The UnUsual Suspect

CometBird development officially discontinued Jan 2015

Recommended Posts

The CometBird development team regret to notify our loyal fans that development of CometBird will officially be stopped effective immediately.

As users are aware this browser hasn't been updated in some time and there has been a lot of speculation as to why and the most credible explanation seemed to be the constant need for the work to be duplicated due to the release strategy of the source code from mozilla, but also a factor is that all popular browsers now offer things like centrally stored bookmarks and other options that made cometbird unique.

The developers did initially plan to revive the project but unfortunately this won't be possible. We thank all those involved in development for their work over the years, many of us have enjoyed using this browser and it will be missed.

For those still using it we recommend switching to Firefox Browser

http://www.mozilla.org/firefox

The Cometbird website will be updated to reflect this in the near future.

We can always have some users come over at Palemoon.

It's updated with the latest security fixes and active.

One question about the browser: Why is it still advertised on the main page? Shouldn't it be taken down?

I come here through cometbird.com

Users have requested it remain available, the team just doesn't have the time to keep up with development.
