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.

Hear hear. At work, I use a PIII/666 with NT 4 and 128mb RAM. Mozilla works like a charm. Just as fast as IE, and leaves 4.x for dead.

I come home, on my 6x86/120 with Win98 and 32mb RAM, it is virtually unusable. Too much RAM consumption, rendering speed is horrible, UI is sluggish.

I think the programmers need a reality check; not everyone uses a 1GHz. I think AOL bought the programmers new computers and dumped the "old" Pentiums.

How can Mozilla be expected to work on tiny embedded devices, when my big clunky PC can't run it properly?

And don't get me started on the Linux version; it is totally unusable on my home box under Linux (then again, Linux and GNOME is near-unusable)
