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.

Entirely false. It is quite feasible to do cross-platform development and use native widgets. I've done it, and it's considered one of the coolest features of the new Eclipse/SWT platform from IBM as well. You just set up a thin cross-platform widget layer and code to that. The reason you do it is because platform standards are the most important component of user-friendliness on a platform.

As usual, pro-Mozilla trolls have no qualms about resorting to distortion.
