Weekend Discussion

Friday June 30th, 2000

The weekend discussion returns, with a simple question:

What's your impression of Mozilla's status at this point? Progressing nicely? Faltering? Are you using Mozilla? If not, what needs to be changed before you start using it full time? Try to be specific, and offer constructive criticism and advice. It would be nice if the Mozilla developers could gather some useful information from the discussion. If you haven't tried out a recent nightly build, take one for a spin before you comment.

I'm sort of split down the middle on Mozilla at this point. On the one hand, there are a lot of way cool things about Mozilla - like the fact that it can do all this fancy CSS,XML,Whatever-Fancy-Language-You-Can-Think-Of-ML stuff that totally runs circles around gen 4 browsers and even surpasses IE5 in places. Also, I've seen a lot of great ideas here, like the way the interface is *totally* customizable (not easily, but still doable) and the searchy-sidebar panel thingy which lets me get multiple results from various engines (although more variety would be nice.)

BUt on the other hand, it still has some very basic problems that prevent me from relying on it totally...Like the aforementioned absence of Java, plus the fact that it still sin't too terribly stable and has totally random bugs everynn now and then, like the fact that I can't really see what I'm typing right now. A list of things I would like to see before this browser is finished would be: - Java(The plugin tends to go haywire somtimes) support & XSL support - More stability & speed - A lot of bugs fixed. - Maybe an autocomplete feature like IE5, but that's of a slightly lower priority
