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.

Mozilla was designed so that the rendering engine can easily be embedded in any application. Making a native UI for Mozilla is trivial. In fact, it is already being done by the guys at Eazel, who are making a Mozilla component for the new file manager/ browser for the Gnome desktop. It still uses XUL scrollbars for now. XUL may not integrate very well with your applications right now, but it is definitely the best solution for Mozilla's cross-platform development at this stage. After Mozilla's API stabilizes, expect to see programs using Mozilla's browsing engine and native UIs on almost every platform.
