Poll Returns

Tuesday September 18th, 2001

We've got a new poll up, for your polling pleasure. It deals with the new Quick Launch feature, and we wanted to know what you think of it. If you think it's buggy, or have improvements, you can note that here, or in the poll's talkback. Poll away!

I can't say what Netscape plans are beyond what they've done in Mozilla and this feature has always been and as far as I can tell will always be an option. There are two places to opt in for the feature and two places to opt out fot the feature. You have to say yes in the installer to turn it on and if you say no there you can turn it on in preferences. You can turn it off in preferences or by context-clicking on the tray icon and disabling quick launch. No one is trying to fool anyone. A user says "yes, I'd like mozilla to stay resident in memory so it starts faster". What's fooling there. The other guys don't give users any choice. I don't like that.

I happen to really like this feature. I don't use it because it can get in the way of testing Mozilla builds but if I was a consumer with a contemporary computer (something that was new in the last year or two)using a Netscape release then I'd definitely enable this feature.
