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.

#151 Fact is more than words out of *a* mouth.

No one disagrees with the sentiment of your second paragraph, however the arguments in the first need much to be desired.

Your personal experience is insufficient evidence (for me but maybe not for you) to conclude a fact. Both Microsoft and the US DOJ gathered a much larger body of evidence. Under scrutiny by the courts, it was determine that this evidence so substantially supported the interpretation – "People *will* use what they are given despite better alternatives" – that it can and now does carry the weight of the law. This is a profound finding of fact that even the financial muscle of the likes of Microsoft will be hard pressed to overturn. Your arguments remain grossly insufficient to convince me otherwise.
