New Experimental Builds

Wednesday October 31st, 2001

Experimental DOM Inspector (linux only) and S/MIME (all) builds are now available for your testing pleasure. The DOM Inspector allows you to see a variety of things in both XUL apps and HTML pages (Screen Shot), and S/MIME will allow encrypted and signed mail to be sent and read.

Nice to see encrypted email being worked on, I know S/MIME is essential for corporate adoption so it's good to see here.

However for the general public (particularly us open source types) PGP or GnuPG are a lot more common. Any plans to support this in the near future?

#3 Simple/Advanced mode

Is it just me, or is mozilla getting to the point where it needs an option to display different options for End users and another for Developers. Most people don't need the JavaScript Console, JavaScript Debugger, DOM Viewer (I know the dom viewer and isn't included yet), Page source, page info, etc, etc..

Similar to how ICQ has a simple and an advanced mode.

Well, Moz *is* only for developers, not end users.

/me ducks and runs..

You can have simple or advanced, Netscape6.x or Mozilla. provides binaries for testing and development purposes. If you don't want Netscape6.x you're free to build yourself without additional developer and testing options or find some Mozilla distributor (Beonex, RedHat, mozillaZine?, etc.) that makes end user products.

Nope. All these additional options are non-intrusive to the average user. On top of that, Mozilla is intended to be for testing, hence all the added testing features. Netscape and others offer the stripped down strictly end-user versions..

Any ideas on when we might see the DOM Inspector available on the Win32 build?

This looks like a great debugging tool. So many JavaScript problems could be easily resolved with a little visibility into the DOM.

Am I on drugs, or is that a Windows screen shot for a "Linux only" feature?

It obviously looks like a Windows screenshot so it's probably from a test build with dom inspector.

That's the current DOM Inspector. I dunno why only made linux builds, as it works on all platforms. I took the screenshot from my current build locally.

There was the DOM Inspector for Windows months ago in some testing builds... Meanwhile you can try ^_-

#12 How to enable these modules in your own builds?

Could someone show (or provide a link that shows) us how to enable these modules in our own builds from CVS? On linux do I add a --enable-??? or --enable-extensions=???? to my .mozconfig?
