Tree Closes for Mozilla 1.0

Wednesday March 27th, 2002

The tree just closed in preparation for Mozilla 1.0, and so far, it's looking promising. What does the tree close mean? This time around, as drivers have been in control of the tree for the entire milestone, the actual process won't change, but drivers approval will begin to get harder and harder to get for a checkin. As we approach 1.0, we'll keep you up to date on current status and other interesting news.

"Many people in this forum have claimed that : a) Opera is a decent browser and much faster than Mozilla/NN6"

I wonder if we can find ANYONE who claims that Opera is NOT a decent browser and much faster than Mozilla. Please note that I'm not saying anything negative about Mozilla here. I'm merely saying that Opera *IS* a decent browser and I am also claiming that it's faster than Mozilla. It sure feels faster than IE 6.0.. I don't like the Opera UI at all.. Of course you could claim just about anything due to the word "much" that you used. "Oh, ok, it seems it's faster. But it's not *MUCH* faster."

"b) Mozilla ui bugs and performance problems is the sole reason for low market share"

"sole reason"? Who claimed that? There are many reasons for Mozilla's / NN6 low market share. Overall quality ("it feels a little shaky and toyish") and performance have surely been reasons as many, many people agree. Other reasons are bad reputation after the first NN 6.0 version, Microsoft's marketing machine and just plain lazyness / unwillingness to switch browser cause "IE works fine so I'll stick to it".
