Towards Mozilla 1.0
Tuesday June 26th, 2001
Gervase Markham recently posted his feelings on what a 1.0 release of Mozilla would be. Gerv has sent us the follow-up to that posting, including much of the feedback he received. To read it, click the full article link. Once you have read through it, we welcome you to post your feelings on what you think a 1.0 release would have. [As Gerv says, please don't post your favorite list of bugs, only the criteria for choosing what bugs to fix.]

I totally agree with your comments about polish. That's what end-users will see. Some don't care about Mozilla's DOM1 compliance, or the new PSM, they just want a browser suite they can use.
IMO, bugs that need to be fixed for 1.0 are ones that limit the user's ability to use Mozilla. Accelerator keys for ALL menus and buttons is one example. Yes, these types of bugs are mostly in the UI, but that's where a lot of the flak has been aimed. Mozilla's UI may be different-looking than most apps, but that doesn't mean it should be harder to use.
