Forums Down

Friday December 14th, 2001

As you may have noticed, we've taken the forums down, as we are hitting our bandwidth limit with them. We're working on getting them up and running again as soon as possible.

In related news, we've added a link to our Cafe Press store where you can get cool MozillaZine appearal, which will help us keep ads off the site for good. Thanks for all your support.

UPDATE: Many people have requested some way of donating money to help us out, so we have setup a paypal account for you to do so. Simply go to and use the email address to contribute. We thank you greatly for all the help, and thank the people who bought stuff at CafePress for the support as well.

I don't feel like an end user. If someone is interested in Mozilla I recomend the Milestone builds and not the nightly, because the nightlies are there just for testing. Even if I use Mozilla as my only browser (apart from testing if something works on the others) I'm still considering myself as a tester and I report problems. So like I said before, new checkins are tested very well before the releases, because Mozilla is tested by some (ten?) thousand people additional to the automated smoketests.

I'm using Milestones since M12 and nightlies since M16 and Mozilla has come along very nicely. Maybe there are some problems in the system and maybe development could go faster if they weren't there but I don't think that they will hold Mozilla from "ever release". Overestimating is still not better than underestimating.
