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.

Well, I wasn't even thinking about it from the standpoint of Forumzilla getting a lot of use. The first thing that occurred to me was the fact that since it appeared in the TASKS menu pulldown, it should naturally also be associated with the TASKbar. I'm not entirely clear on all the ways that the Taskbar can be used... I've always just seen the nice sculpted buttons for the different components (Navigator, Mail, Composer, etc) and the Mozilla pop-up. Shouldn't this be a place where application plug-ins can add a button to themselves?
