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?


#25 XPIs?

As far as I'm aware (correct me if I'm wrong) - the only way to get mail / news added in to a build is to reinstall the lot, including the browser, which seems rather bizarre to me - surely we should have XPIs for any component that can be dropped in. Obvious an API freeze might be necessary before this is possible, but I'm certainly all in favour of being able to just install the browser, and add any bits you want later on.
