Alphanumerica's Total Recall Crash Recovery
Friday June 2nd, 2000
Alphanumerica has put up version .01 of their Mozilla crash recovery tool, Total Recall. If Mozilla crashes, Total Recall will remember all the pages you had open at the time of the crash, and the contents of any form fields on those pages. The next time you start Mozilla, the pages will be listed under the "Crash" menuitem.
Total Recall is at version .01, and works well in Unix, buggy in Windows, and not at all on Mac. The next version will work on all platforms and be bundled with the next revision of the Aphrodite package.
I think this really shows how extensible Mozilla is, and how Mozilla's architecture allows gives developers an opportunity to contribute useful features to the community. That will be the real benefit of the work that the Mozilla developers have been doing. Skins are great, and they will be very popular, but extensions and utilities will prove the worth of Mozilla's open architecture.

But shouldn't Mozilla not crash at all once we're in the "home stretch"?
Okay, maybe I was idealizing a bit, but in case in the RARE situation that in the future Mozilla does crash, I will forever worship Alphanumerica as the new Net God ::overwhelmed by memories of emotions experienced from lost work due to the browser crashing::
