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.

All I want to see is Stability and a Release. I could care less about alpha png transparency, XSLT, and all these features that everyone wants. Get a stable browser, with a decent gecko engine - release that, and *then* add all these other doodads. I remember when .x series was released, jpg support! wow. We've got support for so much built into mozilla, let's push it out the door in a stable, usable fashion. Let's kill redesign of implementations - Can you say massive regressions due to the tree widget redesign, or any other redesign? I knew you could.

I'm all for something that works good enough that I can install it on my Mother's computer. She's not going to miss alpha transparancy support if it doesn't make it into the first cut. Joseph Elwell. A Bitter Old Man.
