Microsoft Ruling to Come Today

Monday April 3rd, 2000

The Associated Press is reporting that Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson will issue a ruling in the Microsoft anititrust suit after the financial markets close today. The notice of the ruling follows the failure of settlement talks mediated by Richard A. Posner of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago.

It's fair to consider Mozilla an indirect consequence of Microsoft's actions in the browser space. So, I have a hypothetical question to pose to you. What do you think the browser situation would look like today if Mozilla wasn't made Open Source -- if Netscape had held onto their code and produced it without outside help? What would the last two years have been like? Where would the browsers be today?

I have been trying to find out whether or not they are going to change a particular behaviour in Moz anytime. I have looked thru bugzilla, and searched, and the most freq. bugs list, etc. But I dont see it at all.

I was wondering if they will ever change it so that you can right click in the url/address bar, and copy/paste (as you can in IE and NS4.x), or if it is going to remain locked to the edit menu option.

Right click-copy works in the browser itself, but not in the address bar. It REALLY is a little annoying.

Sorry to go offtopic, but I didnt see a general discussion area.
