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 sitting here reading Mozillazine with nearly flawless rendering, good speed, and fully open source. Darn near 90% of what I want from a browser.
Too bad that what I'm reading with is the old KFM from the KDE desktop. Oh sure, I know that it doesn't even do a fraction of what Mozilla is capable of. Thing is though, it renders basic HTML one hell of a lot better than any of the nightly builds have ever done.
With IE on Windows and Konquerer on Linux all the cross platform widget stuff just isn't feeling as important as it once did. Possibly a good idea over a year ago, but that was over a year ago. The web has moved on and the relevance of Mozilla along with it.
