Can any of the mozilla developers give any feedback as to whether this demo will be useful to them and/or the whole mozilla project. Are the results surprising or would most of these bugs be known about?

As I understand it we have a tool called SpaceTrace that does much of the same thing.

Newsforge in their article hyperlinks to mozillaquest again when talking about mozilla being "buggy".

I think the reason people can't stop hyperlinking to mozquest is because there is no other suitable news-ish site "reviewing" mozilla. Thus, when they need to point to a news-ish site, they're forced to mozquest...

Pardon my French, but "huh"?! Since when is mozillaquest a "news-ish" site and since when has mozillaquest done a serious "review" of mozilla? If a reader wants a "news-ish" site then check out Web Review <http://www.webreview.com/> or Browser Watch <http://browserwatch.internet.com/> or News.Com or ZDnet.Com. Like the Browser Watch Review: Netscape 6.1 <http://browserwatch.inter…2001/news-20010823-1.html> or the Browser Watch release notices for Netscape 6.2.1 <http://browserwatch.inter…2001/news-20011210-1.html> and Mozilla 0.9.7 <http://browserwatch.inter…2002/news-20020102-1.html> .

So, do you read last years or last months magazine when you want news? Noppe, you trawl the sites - ALL of them - that might have a snippet of news. I never go to MozillaQuest personally as I do not value the authors comments. But, I remember a time when news on Mozilla wasn't hard to come by. Nowadays its a rarety. A damn shame but there you go.

I would go to last month's or last year's (or even last decade's) Scientific American or Nature before going to yesterday's Weekly World News. Nope, I don't trawl the sites, I go to the news source (mozilla.org or netscape.com) and then I go to a news site that specializing in the topic (browser or internet news site) or I may go to a search engine (google.com or yahoo.com). In none of these cases does mozillaquest show up as a first, second, or even third choice for news (even in a search engine). I have no problem finding Mozilla news.

#9 Looks like gccchecker (which is free software)

Although it must be much easier to use. When you use gccchecker you need to *port* a project to it. Besides, someone should create a nice gtk interface.

(I've previously posted this on MozillaNews =) ).

#10 Can't see demo

I can't run the demo that shows it debugging mozilla. It tells me to use Nescape or IE, but I am using Mozilla. Is this ironic or what? Also can't download the trial program. Tells me that my domain is illegal. Pity, because I would be interested in their product.
