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.

I'm using a P100, with 80MB RAM, Win95 OSR2, and Mozilla crawls. Last build I used was the PR1. It would seem that most people are using horribly fast computers, and as such, who cares how slow it is? I for one, DO!

I'm using IE5.01 at the moment, and that's simply because it loads up faster and renders faster than Netscape 4.61 (I think?)

Back to Mozilla... UI is slow, load time is slow, thousands of small files installed (massive problems for me when I usually run with less than 30MB free on the hard drive after the install), memory requirements should come down so I can use the computer for something else, etc.

I'm still supporting the project, but I'd really love to see some real large improvements in the memory requirements, and load speed, etc, before I use it on a daily basis.

And, I hope that I don't end up eating my words when Mozilla finally gets to an official release version and it turns out to be _slower_ than IE... I'm hate for that to happen.. ;P
