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.

According to this <http://www.zdnet.com/devh…g_library/history/ie.html> page, IE "was originally based on the Spyglass Mosaic code." As IE6's About box still mentions that it's based on NCSA (Spyglass) Mosaic, I think the same fundamental codebase has always been used, though extensive parts of it have been rewritten.
