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.

#16 Slow and leaky

I try to use Mozilla under Linux, downloading the nightly builds every once in a while. I find its feel to be noticeably slower than Netscape. The preferences interface is slow and ugly, and I'm not convinced that the preferences are always saved. And worst of all, it leaks memory like a sieve. I run lavaps, and watch the blobs representing Mozilla grow larger and larger until I finally have to kill the program off to avoid using up all memory (although this isn't much different from Netscape itself).
