Site Suggestions

Tuesday January 8th, 2002

A few of you have asked for us to post a news item taking your suggestions for the site, so here it is. Tell us all your ideas for what we can do to improve the site. Anything you want we'll think about, but try to keep it realistic.

Just to keep you updated, one of the things we're planning on working on is getting the ChromeZone up again, if we can find some volunteer editors to help organize themes. If you're interested, please email me and I'll get back to you sometime this week.

UPDATE! Right now we're working on dumping all the tables and other old HTML within the site to both show off Mozilla's skills, and to get our file sizes smaller. If you're using Communicator to view the site, you'll notice everything looking pretty ugly, thanks to the poor CSS support it offers. If you're using IE, it'll look a bit better, but thanks to IE's lacking CSS2 support, the sidebar will show up incorrectly. We've completely redone the homepage and talkback code, and we'll be working on the forums next.

UPDATE 2! We discovered Google's great "Search Site" feature, and have added it. Right now it has most areas of the site indexed except news item talkback pages. It will start indexing talkback today, and will hopefully add all of the old items, in addition to picking up the new ones.

UPDATE 3! We've been working hard to get as many of your suggestions as possible implemented, and we encourage you to continue the feedback. You can check this article's responses for what items we have fixed, or are working on.

" are shooting your own self in the foot with your own argument by saying that a user, despite the marvelous positive feedback and recommendations regarding software product X, that they are incapable of cruising over to CNet to download and install software product X because a competing software product Y is already included with Windows."

This is an *established fact* even in law which tends to be very conservative. It is this *fact* that lead to Microsoft’s lost of its anti-trust case. It is this *fact* that lead the courts have denied Microsoft proposed settlement. People *will* use what they are given despite better alternative. Most people hold this fact to be true. Your arguments to the contrary are insufficient to convince me otherwise.

That those with influence in the Mozilla community recognise this fact only bodes well that appropriate steps will be taken to address it.
