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.]

In order to 'advocate' use of Mozilla and commercial offshoots, the user experience must be exceptional in the initial release.
Let us all learn from the company which members have a variety of, good and bad, feeling about; Microsoft. Their product may not be complete, but it is polished and somewhat bugfree.
So I agree that user experience is very important.
My second criteria would be stability.
Third criteria, the ability to download updates without having to download an entire new release. Users, like my parents and other non-techies, cannot and will not download newer releases unless an easy 'Update' feature is built in. Good examples are the Windows Update and Symantec's LiveUpdate feature.
