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.

Your comments about the current state of Windows APIs versus the state of Windows APIs in the past fails to take one thing into consideration - when Mozilla made the decision to go with non-native widgets was back when the Windows APIs were not as good. So even if it were possible to use native widgets now, it was definitely not possible then.

Of course, anyone who wants to work on developing a Mozilla based browser using native widgets can still do so.
