Mozilla First Release? "Mozilla 1.0"

Thursday June 29th, 2000

There has been some question as to what the first release of Mozilla will be called. But now, in a post to the n.p.m.seamonkey newsgroup, Mitchell Baker states that the name of Mozilla's first release will officially be "Mozilla 1.0". They decided to use the "1.0" appellation because, "this is the first release developed through the open source process, and much of the code and the architecture is new". The user-agent will still begin with the "Mozilla/5.0" substring.


#20 Are they really using that ugly skin?

One of the worst things about the whole Mozilla project is that ugly default skin. As was mentioned in an earlier discussion, changing the skin to the classic skin made manny people feel like Mozilla was running better, including myself. Anyone who's done any work in interface design will tell you that the default skin is too dark, the big ugly icons make the interface look like it was designed for a child, and the large difference in look will probably scare a lot of people off. I think Mozilla and Netscape should seriously think about using a more classic lookin skin and allowing the user to decide if they want to use the ugly one or one of the other ones.

On the other hand, Mozilla can't possibly run any worse than the latest versions of Netscape have been running. My frind and I have both been having tons of JavaScript errors and crashes, but that's a different story.
