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.
> Word-Wide-Web Consortium - also known as W3C, or just W3
> 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.
Nonsense. See above.
> Mozilla's complex evolution
Add, that Mozilla has only roughly 5% of source code in common with Comm. 4.x.
> 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
> 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.
