Independent Status Reports
Friday July 27th, 2001
The status reports have returned! Tony Jordan, like many of us, has been busy with many things, and while he is away, David Boswell of MozDev.org has volunteered to take care of the status reports from projects outside of the main Mozilla tree. Click the Full Article link to check them out.
A lot of these can already be done. Someone just needs to make xul front ends for them.
> 1. A way to prevent popups.
> 2. A way to prevent images from certain domains (i.e doubleclick, etc.)
> 3. A macro/script language. Since Moz is basically built using one, it shouldn't be difficult to add. The framework would expose events, like WebPage_Requested, WebPage_Loaded, etc...
> 4. Right-click on a picture and get a menu item that let's you email the picture. How many times have I had to save it on a disk first and then mail it? I don't even know. This one is really easy.
Um, right click, select view image. Then go to file->Send Page. I just tried it, it works.
> 5. Select some text, right click on it and get a menu to email the text.
This one is do-able but how often would it be used? It would just clutter up the, already too large, right click menu. Honestly, can't you just select the text, copy it, press ctrl-m, and paste it?
> 6. Have more than 2 usable themes.
This is being done. Click get themes in the view menu in mozilla. I have used the Aqua theme before and there is also another one which I've seen some people using. More themes will come out when mozilla's xul stabalizes (aka mozilla 1.0).
