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.

Ok here's my list of issues with Mozilla that keep me from using it 100%. I've been dying to get these off my chest:

1) Bookmark system hardly works (folders simply don't) 2) Mozilla hangs randomly (not a crash) and I have to end task 3) UI is slow as death 4) Bugs with forms 5) Bugs with Javascript 6) Obscene memory footprint (30-50MB) 7) PSM won't remember settings, so I always get those pop-up windows warning me about this and that. 8) Conflict with McAfee VirusScan that occurs a few times a day, forcing me to end task on Mozilla. 9) Having Mozilla running occasionally locks up other programs, which are released as soon as you close Mozilla. 10) Scrolling w/ wheel mouse sometimes causes Mozilla to continue scrolling in that direction (even though you've stopped turning the wheel), until it hits the top/bottom of the page. It's as if it gets "stuck". And scrolling is just slow as death anyways.

I do not use Mozilla for mail, news, or HTML editing. Nor will I be using it for IRC, instant messenging, tying my shoes, or making coffee.
