Mozilla 1.0 Definition

Tuesday October 16th, 2001

Brendan Eich, mozilla.org's Technical Bigshot, today posted what mozilla.org believes are the criteria to release a 1.0 milestone. The posting outlines exactly what Mozilla 1.0 is (and isn't), how mozilla.org plans to get there, and what the timeline to get to 1.0 is. Also, it explains why a 1.0 release is needed, and why it's not just another milestone.

I don't know what you think autoscroll is, but what the bookmarklets page has ain't it. I'm talking about placing an artifact on clicking with the mousewheel, and moving the mouse causes the page to scroll in that direction.

It's not a gimmick, it's prevalent on any win32 computer with an decent mouse and it's a much easier way to scroll around. Instead of having to move over the scrollbars, you can scroll no matter where you are. And it can coexist with opening in a new window.
