Weekend Discussion

Friday March 24th, 2000

Time for another weekend discussion. The question this weekend:

What do you feel is an appropriate level of integration between a browser and an Operating System? And at the other end of the spectrum, what are your feelings about Mozilla's cross-platform approach?

I agree. I think it's stupid for them to just go and rebel against what people are used to, because what people are used to in an apllication is not particularly bad. I think their making a mistake by being so different, but they might be able to make it work IF Mozilla's interface was MORE useful than the standard. Why would you come out with a program that uses a different interface and different functionality than anyone is used to, and that is really pretty annoying, irritating, and useless, and expect for people to want to use it? The only people who are going to use Mozilla are the immature teenagers that think the interface LOOKS kind of cool. It does not make sense. Mozilla needs to take into consideration what it's REALLY got on the other browsers, not just focus on one thing, cross-platform functionality. That's only ONE step.
