Not sure how your comment is  related to the original question but let me just 
add this:

- IBM's s390x architecture is fully supported and one of IBM's cash cows and 
it's big-endian
- IBM's AIX operating system which IBM is still actively developing and selling 
is big-endian

Not really. Firefox on Solaris/SPARC exists and works. It's not complex, it's 
just that I am
doing the work here alone. I was planning to write an answer to this mail but I 
haven't gotten
around to doing that.

Linus is not the center of the universe.
