Full Article Attached Mail/News Performance Effort Underway

Friday November 2nd, 2001

Seth Spitzer today sent an update out about what the Mail/News team is doing to meet their goals for Mozilla 1.0. They'll be focusing almost 100% of their effort for at least the next two milestones (0.9.7, 0.9.8) on Footprint and Performance of the various parts of Mail, News, and Addressbook. Not only will they be focusing on it, they'll also be locking down their part of the tree and only accepting performance or footprint fixes. Very few exceptions will be made.

Actually, I don't think Nokia does use Mozilla. Look at this link <> which says AOL is licensing a Nokia browser. Gecko is way too big for most handhelds.

Yes, exactly, which is why although the project would theoretically survive without Netscape, in reality without their constant infusion of cash and resources, it would never achieve release-ready quality levels. It's having a hard enough time with their sponsorship -- it would get nowhere without it.

> Where is the Mozilla HQ located physically? <

At the Netscape headquarters complex.

At the Netscape headquarters complex.

> Where is Bugzilla? <

On a Netscape server. Remember Gerv complaining last week Netscape wouldn't give them money to upgrade it?

> Who pays for its bandwidth? <

Netscape Communications Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of AOL Time Warner.
