Hello,
I want to use FireFox3, becouse they have fixed certain unicode problems, and alot of bugs overall, but if i emerge mozilla-firefox-bin (the ebuild for ff3), then it refuses to run. As i understand, this "bin" means, that the thing is binary just like skype (i mean binary for linux x86, nor for linux ppc), if so, is there a way of getting source code of that browser, or i just have to wait till ff3 will become "stable"?

The mozilla overlay on overlays.gentoo.org: http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/mozilla/browser/www-client/mozilla-firefox
Unsupported, so don't complain if it eats your dog and sets your car on fire.

If anyone is wondering, the beta4 works pretty well on PowerPC, I've been using it for a little while now. :)
