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.

Bull. Maybe if it came out a year or more ago; but most (not all) Netscape users use Netscape mail, too, and had mail/news been lacking, it would have been one more reason to turn to IE (because whether they're really separate or not, Outlook Express is downloaded with IE, so it is perceived as being a part of IE.
