I have an idea... I am not a highly experienced programmer, but I know enough to offer some ideas. I believe that many of the problems with BeOS/Mozilla compatibility can be resolved permenantly if BeZilla programmers would just create programs to do the functions that cause problems in a BeOS-friendly manner. This would require work, yes... then on the other hand, it could be arranged in such a way, that a "small" program can be created to automatically convert the Mozilla code for BeOS ( for programmers' productivity ). This would then link BeZilla progress and functions more closely with the full-blown Mozilla...naturally some alterations will need to be done with big version upgrades, but will take considerably less time than re-writing the whole code... Finally, BeZilla could be made more unique, and take advantage of BeOS features... Sorry about the length, but I feel that this is a very important topic!! BTW... if you absolutely need a Javascript-enabed browser that is more stable than Mozilla, goto free.be.com then download BeOS Updates, then go down to the bottom and download Netpositive 3.0d3!!
