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.

You can pretty much cancel any plans to upgrade. Even though Mozilla seems to be putting in significant resources to make sure it's compatible with AOL's proprietary mail system, LDAP has been officially deemed dead for Moz 1.0. I also require LDAP for my E-Mail, and for the E-Mail at everyone at my office. Yeah, I'm pretty upset with this. What really gets me going is the efforts being put forth for AOL's crap, while an open standard like LDAP hits the scrap heap. I spent a health amount of time working in detailed bug reports, and debating this with developers on the newsgroups as well. Can you say total IE dominance into 2002?
