Independent Status Reports
Wednesday January 30th, 2002
This weeks status reports for various independent projects around the mozilla community.
As one of two Andys on the googlebar project, I thought I'd point out that we're looking for help with our find search terms in page feature, which is currently quite limited. At the moment it can only highlight a single instance of a single term at a time, and as the latest from cvs (not reflected in the latest release, unfortunately) shows, there are some really strange bugs with how the buttons for each search term are removed fom the toolbar. That said, any and all suggestions on the highlight search terms in page feature (mozilla has a related bug- <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62467> ) that could make it behave in a more google-like manner would be greatly appreciated. Suggestions welcome on our wishlist: <http://googlebar.mozdev.org/annotation.html>
You might check in over at the K-Meleon web site:
Several people are working on doing the same thing using K-Meleon's macro functionality. They probably could share some info. and highlight the functionality that they are looking for.
Thanks for the tip. We're also looking for some mozilla-oriented developers to help implement things like a prefs panel to configure googlebar options, and a few other features mentioned on our wishlist ( <http://googlebar.mozdev.org/annotation.html> ). I haven't had much time to work on the googlebar lately but we're actively looking for help to keep the project moving, so if anyone is interested, leave a note here or on the project site. Thanks!
I love the idea of Jabberzilla, especially using it in its own window. I haven't been able to have jabberzilla working for a while though :(. Good to here you're still developing, I look forward to the fruits of your labour.
Can you take advantage of Cocoa's Unicode support in Cocoazilla? OmniWeb's Unicode support is excellent, and it would be nice to see a Mac *zilla with such a high level of Unicode support. (I would also love to see the full suite in Cocoazilla, but we take what we can get!)
