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.

it will, but developers are somtimes taking the right decision about priorities. And this is certanly functionality that can very easily be reached with the scrollbars. There are way to many other things that have to be done first before someone should think about little gimmicks like that. I don't even know anyone who uses AutoScroll regularily in any application. But I know many people who would like to see Mozilla start faster, be even more stable (a crash in a month is still a crash), does have a mail client that supports at least everything NS4 supportet and cool stuff like pgp.
If the few pixels to the right to scroll down are to much for you I suggest you set your mouse acceleration to a higher value. Moving the mouse 2-3cm to the right and dragging with an easy going left button seems to consume less energy than pushing a often not so easy goning scroll wheel. And if you really think you need AutoScroll you'll just have to be patient. Nearly every useful feature will be in Mozilla sometimes but it takes some time to get them all there...
