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.

I think the commitment to remain viable would out-weigh and feature commitments to the existing small and dwindling customer base of which only a sub-set actually used the extraneous features.

One major hope is tha AOL switches to Gecko. But this cannot happen until Gecko matches IE in performance, reliability, rendering expectations, etc. And AOl has no need whatsoever for mail, news, chat, skins and edit.
