Mozilla/Netscape 6 FAQ

Tuesday April 18th, 2000

Gerbil writes, "Having been using Mozilla for many months, and in light of the recent attention that Mozilla has gained with the release of Netscape 6 Preview Release 1, I decided to make a Mozilla/Netscape6 FAQ to address many of the common questions, misconceptions and complaints about it.

To finish the FAQ I am asking the help from MozillaZine and its readers to critique every word of it. This includes corrections, suggestions, advice, etc.

The FAQ as at my site at http://gerbilbox.netherweb.com/newzilla/ and email me your comments about it to gerbil@ucdavis.edu.

Thanx!"

Glossary ========

> Word-Wide-Web Consortium - also known as W3C, or just W3

s/W3/W3.org/

> W3C [...] approving the Internet standards used to display and organize content on the Internet

s/on the Internet/for the WWW/

The WWW is only a small part of the Internet.

Mozilla ======= > It would be Netscape's job ...

Delete that sentence. It's not only Netscape's job, and you explain that in the next question.

> The Internet is made up of various standards, most of them maintained by the World-Wide-Web Consortium.

s/most/some/

Nonsense. See above.

> Mozilla's complex evolution

Add, that Mozilla has only roughly 5% of source code in common with Comm. 4.x.

NS6 ===

> there have been a number of skins created

Tecnically, they're chromes, since the default chrome is not skinnable at the moment (BenGoodger is working on it IIRC).

> Why is it so slow?

Performance is on the schedule for PR3.

> Because of this unfortunately situation

d/ly

Other =====

> Mozilla offers full support

Be very carefull. E.g. are you sure, that JPEG2000 is supported (I don't know)?

You forgot the mail/news standards.

> Proprietary standards, [...] even Netscape's own additions such as the LAYER tag, are not supported

Wrong. XUL, XBL etc.

> AmigaOS

Sure?
