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.

#27 3 Basic Items - or Why I Don't Use Mozilla

1. Roaming Profiles. I use computers in 3 different locations a day and I want my preferences, bookmarks etc.

2. Strong Crypto. SSL for protecting credit card data and S/MIME for encrypted e-mail.

3. LDAP. LDAP-based addressing as in 4.7+.

Until these features are there IE will kick Mozilla's ass up and down the street on Windows and I'm stuck with 4.7 on UNIX.

Why release a 1.0 if it doesn't support half the features from the 4.x?
