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.

my guess would be that fewer than 5% (about 1 million) of aol users read or post to newsgroups on a regular basis. do you think that's in the ball-park? and that the percentage is going down. and that the vast majority of them read and post through aol's proprietary interface.

apologize for not having the data. i'd be happy to be proven wrong.
