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.

"Given the changes made in the past few months to the front end these claims surprise me. I figured our implementation is slowly getting better. "

Don't get me wrong Ben. It is and it isn't. Your work has greatly improved the UI. However, nothing is currently on a pro level and at this point, it should be. It is sloppy, nonconforming (in a bad way) and toyish. This is *not* because of xpfe and xptoolkit. It in my opinion is a matter of not taking things to the level of high detail needed for a serious professional looking/feeling application. I am speaking holistically about the UI. It is a common sense observation. If i have to report a bug about this, then that's a problem. It means that there is something wrong on the perception level.

Mozilla can be so much more. I am just pushing to see the excellence the UI deserves.
