First Forumzilla Release!

Friday September 15th, 2000

Tony Jordan writes, "We wanted to let everone know that we have released a new Mozilla application called ForumZilla. This is a newsgroup like web-based forum reader that lets you read sites like MozillaZine, for example, in a mail/news type format. In fact, MozillaZine is the first forum to support ForumZilla. Go here for the press release or just go here to install it and tell us what you think!"

After installing Forumzilla and restarting, the app will appear in your Tasks menu. Click it, and when the Forumzilla window comes up, choose Subscribe from the App menu. For now, choose one of the two forums from the dropdown list. If you subscribe to the MozillaZine forum, you can then browse and reply to our forums using Forumzilla.

Forumzilla is an extremely cool implementation of Mozilla's XUL technology (and RDF as well). Definitely check it out when you get the chance.

#12 XUL is a proprietary technology

Ok, results are Cool. Ok, I can't wait Netscape 6 to be released. Ok, I do my best by reporting bugs to bugzilla, but lets say true: XUL is a proprietary technology. Like VBscript and so on. And this means that unless I design look of my site for _EVERY_ browser I will not use it.

Another thing is that if I design some system, I can not relay on XUL, unless I know that I can request users use Mozilla to run that system ('cos I know of no features in other browsers that would easily/automagically emulate XUL posibilities).
