Status Update

Friday January 14th, 2000

David Polberger thought it was worth drawing attention to Jim Roskind's Seamonkey status update on the mozilla.org Status Update page.

Jim talks about dogfood, alpha, beta -- all from an unofficial point-of-view -- and gives a clear look ahead at the next few months of development.

There's a lot to do, but they're making great progress, and I expect M13 (the tree closes for M13 stabilization on the 18th of January) will get a strong reception.

I know that Mozilla will be able to handle the boxacidtest. But if IE 5.5 for the Mac is going to standard compliant as well, Mozilla is going to have quite a challenge convincing Mac users to use Mozilla (not that Mac users like the way Mozilla looks like right now). Will there be more effort to get XUL to be able to imitate a more Mac like interface?
