M13 Alpha - What's Next?

Thursday January 27th, 2000

Mozilla.org has declared M13 to be "alpha" which means Mozilla needs your attention and constructive bug reports as it pushes towards beta. Why not check out the latest builds and start using Mozilla more and more throughout your day?

Also, you can join the gathering in #mozillazine every evening. Talk about the latest builds, help clear out duplicate bugs, or just hang and chat. Point your IRC client at irc.mozilla.org, or, better yet, you can use the Chatzilla IRC client enabled in the latest builds (under the Tasks menu). Just start up the client, /attach moznet, and then /join #mozillazine. You'll probably want to change your nick from IRCMonkey to something more appropriate once you get connected. :-) You can also use the Java chat client on our chat page.


#27 What's with the dotted lines around form inputs?

I've noticed for a while that dotted lines show up around form inputs whenever the inputs get focus. What's the deal with that? If they are supposed to show that the input has had focus recently, then they sure are buggy. Only some inputs get them and then when they have the dotted lines they dissapear after a while. Weird behavior.

Oh, speaking of weird bahavior, check out Ebay with the latest build. Notice how the page looks weird until you click on the search box and all of a sudden the page displays correctly? I've noticed that on a lot of pages, including this one when I was writing this.

Little things like this seem to be the only major thing I can see keeping this project from going beta.
