Netscape Revamps My Netscape

Thursday April 26th, 2001

While we normally don't post news on Netscape stuff, this is one that we wanted to talk about. Netscape today turned off customized content on My Netscape. This means that our rdf channel there, as well as our sidebar, no longer work. We have been working on a new sidebar panel for a while, and this will help push it along. As soon as it's ready, we'll let you know.

If you want to complain about this, we highly encourage you to email Netscape and ask for your custom content back.

I find the situation pretty comical. Usually, people on MozillaZine are praising Mozilla and I'm awe-struck by it because I think it's *CURRENTLY* totally unusable because of the millions of bugs and quirks in it.

My Netscape was really strange for me. I couldn't understand how many of the bugs there would persist for such a long time. There were simple things like button images that were stretched by WIDTH and HEIGHT attributes in IMG tags to dimension that were other than the actual image was. This was very obvious in some cases.. I complained about it several times MONTHS ago and no change. In the end, I was so disgusted by the whole thing that I just stopped using it. It felt like the whole site was dead.

So.. now they updated it and I'm jumping in joy because it looks good, and works well. It doesn't have all the channels it used to have, but I'm sure they are working on it. So I come here and what do I see? Everyone is complaining that it sucks, looks bad etc.

How is it possible that my oppinions and those of the average MozillaZine user (is there such a thing?) can differ so radically?
