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.

Others could implement it only if: XUL interfaces will stop changing AND will be documented like HTML and other standard are.

I agree that it allows to create more natural applications. But what you will tell to those who will came to your site using old browsers? "Please install mozilla"? Guess what lots of potential users will do if your competitor supports all the browsers!?
