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.

Please let me know one or two reasons why netscape users need another mail client. I've iterated the reasons they don't several times.

They are working on a mail client because 1) they felt it necessary to reproduce the Netscape 4.x suite and 2) there is a small but vocal minority requesting it.

It's dangerous to eschew outsider perspectives. This invariably leads to an overly internal focus and a misunderstanding of market needs. Mozilla's a good case study.
