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.

fist....Mozilla is damn stable for me, it crashes far less than IE or Windows itself (again for me). Also I can browse the web, send and read my email and sometimes put a quick page together without noticing any real problems so I think it is quite usable.

Als long as your claims for marketshare. Let's use a "finished" product named Opera. It is damn fast, relatively stable and most people think it's simply perfectly usable. And it's marketshare? Is it noticable? Do I know any one who uses it? I heard remotely of such persons. So who fits this in your theory about "if it's usable it gets its marketshare regardless of IE bundled to Windows or not".

So to bring some real facts in the discussion (something you didn't till now) I as a user think that Mozilla is stable, usable and even fast enough (on my PII 450). And a finished, usable, and fast product doesn't have any real marketshare.
