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.

And, gosh, I bet Mozilla developers lie awake at night (as you seem to) worrying about this particular feature of CSS3, a standard set the browser doesn't yet support.

Oh an by the way, Apple did climb down a bit about Aqua - they've said that it is okay to develop Moz widgets to mimic native ones, but, I believe, only if they only work on the mac. Whilst a fork to deliberately break one theme's cross-platform compatibility doesn't look like the first thing people will work on, to say 'never' is a bit extreme - and you can be pretty sure that Netscape will be at least considering this for their closed-source mozilla-based browser.
