What do you think?

Wednesday October 10th, 2001

Many in the community have been discussing what components nightly builds should include by default. We wanted to find out what you think? Are you happy to see the new Javascript Debugger included in the build? Would you like to see other things shipped, like the DOM Inspector? Or would you rather only see the browser shipped, and make the rest, like Mail/News, Chatzilla, and other components, optional add ons?


#10 depends on what build you are talking about

The nightly builds are for early adopters, developers and testers. I'd say they want easy access to everything related to Mozilla. However, milestones are for regular users and they will only be annoyed by large downloads of stuff they will mostly never touch. So I suggest to make developer stuff like debuggers, test urls and so on optional in the milestones. And as discussed earlier, a build with all the developer stuff removed might as well be presented as Mozilla 1.0 so that we can all move on with our lives. I've felt Mozilla is close to a release for nearly two years now, somebody please stop the madness.
