Mozilla Branches for 0.9.8

Wednesday January 23rd, 2002

mozilla.org today branched for Mozilla Milestone 0.9.8, as well as opened the tree for 0.9.9 checkins. Look for branch builds to start sometime later this week, as early as tomorrow. (While a certain site believes that without builds, you can't have a branch, that is not true.) Pre-0.9.9 trunk builds will start tomorrow, or possibly tonight. See our earlier story for what's new in 0.9.8.

There is a bugzilla mechanism to cope with this issue: file an evangelization bug on the site at <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/> so the Mozilla evangelization crew can break out their Sunday-preaching-garb and sermonize the sinning web developers on the importance of cross-platform accessibility. We're all aware of it, but it is a web site developer issue, not a Mozilla issue.

This seems to happen most often in two cases: 1.) very small sites where the web designer simply doesn't have enough experience to know better, and 2.) very large sites where development and administration are separate functions and the developers don't see the web browser stats. The market penetration of Mozilla-based browsers sounds negligible until you actually look at your stats log and see how many hits you're dropping because your site is totally IE-specific.
