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.

"the obvious advantage is due to the age old reality that specialization leads to superior results."

This argument would carry more weight if Outlook (your example) wasn't a horrible, useless piece of junk.

Besides, the Mozilla browser and mail/news projects are specialized: different teams work on each.
