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.

well stated, strauss.

the usage of the browser part of the mozilla project is critical to the mozilla effort since without it, mozilla has no relevance whatsoever. whereas without mail, news, edit, chat and skins, mozilla would still be relevant if the browser was good.

the majority of Netscape's current (small) installed base defeinitely does not use news, edit, chat or skins. i suppose it's possible that the majority uses mail, but even that i doubt since so many users do not have much of a choice in the matter nor could set up POP/IMAP on a reliable basis. AOL users use AOL. Coporate users use Outlook, Notes, etc. Mac users use Eudora. Hotmail users use Hotmail or Outlook. Not sure what that leaves.
