Mozilla 1.0 Definition

Tuesday October 16th, 2001

Brendan Eich,'s Technical Bigshot, today posted what believes are the criteria to release a 1.0 milestone. The posting outlines exactly what Mozilla 1.0 is (and isn't), how 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.

#53 Missing features

I' ve been using Mozilla Browser as my main browser for 10 months. As I already said, it's far away from NS4x in terms of features, standards compatibility and STABILITY. I only miss NS4 performance and footprint but that's off topic here. I use IE only when I need to save html with images and on poorly implemented web sites (admittedly a lot of them :( My most missing features from browser are:

49543 Separate Toolbar from Address Bar <>

41924 Change how layout handles broken images (alt text) <>

47475 Need "show-image" item on right-click menu similar to 4.x <>

I use Mozilla as my only Mail & News client, since 6 months ago. As I said before, it is far better than NS4 on international support but, besides the usual performance and footprint issues, I still find a lot of key (?) features missing:


62429 put signature above quoted text <>

62870 html message window has no context menu <>

62872 plain text message window has no context menu <>

61497 can't select text in message headers <>

18729 Windows integration for new mail notification (systray icon) <>

64716 [RFE] Make it so POP users can delete local folders <>

Send To capability on Windows Explorer context menu (mapi?)


61139 RFE: progress bar when downloading mail <>

56301 Editor needs spell checking <>

43015 Only one file can be selected in Attach File dialog <>

BUGS NOT FOUND IN NS4 4302 PgUp/PgDn in editor don't move caret (platform differences) <>

44823 UI: Thread Pane-Alignment of Subject column (oops! that's not 4xp) <>

82487 offline: Startup mode doesn't work-"remember my prev mode" <>
