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?

>As for the interface, I'm starting to think that its leaning towards developers, which is fine because I am one, but I know a lot of people out there are not, and they outnumber me... so there should be an option to change the interface based on if you are a developer or if you are an end user.

Wouldn't the traditional Mozilla answer be that Mozilla does privide binaries only for testing purposes and it's customers like Netscape are for the end user.

Although I can understand this, my only problem is that Netscape releases it's browsers only twice a year or so, with a really outdated 6.1 as it's currently newest available version, so Mozilla works better in many points and that's what every end user wants. On the other hand it's much effort every time to build a new Netscape Version and since many of the Mozilla developers work for Netscape this is propably taking time which would otherwise be used to improve Mozilla even further so it's a nice dilemma...

But I consider myself as an developer and I like Mozilla like it is :)
