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.

#48 basically needs speed and stability

Think the most important thing is speed in stability as far as a browser is concerned. For me, I'd also like to see a much leaner browser. I think maybe as Microsoft continues to spiral out of control with bloat, perhaps people would turn to mozilla as an alternative. I've got a P133, with 48Megs of RAM, and Mozilla basically crawls. Granted it whips up html pages in a flash, but is it really worth it if the rest of my computer drags? (God forbid if I'm playing an mp3 and I have a paint program open at the same time as Mozilla).

Mozilla is really a great browser otherwise. There are a few odds and ends problems but they'll eventually be fixed.

Last but not least... once the browser gets fixed, someone needs to work on the entire e-mail disaster area. It works, but barely. If Netscape has done anything right, it's Messenger, and I'd hate to see it turn to crap.
