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.

Ok, so if I understand you correctly, you are primarily talking about the strategic importance and economic network effects for AOL Time Warner.

The thing is that the software project under discussion was Mozilla.

Now if the argument were that the Netscape developers should focus on the browser only then perhaps your statements would have a little more merit, but that is not what was being said. Besides, even in regards to Netscape, I do not believe that dropping the email client and HTML editor would be a good move. The majority of Netscape's current install base make use of one or both of those parts of the suite.
