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.

I don't use IE anymore (except for the rare cases where a site using proprietary html is completely unreadable). So I would liketo know if IE6 has pop-up blocking, window size and bookmark managent (any silly site can add "Favourites" to your computer) blocking preferences that can be easily modified. My impression is that the user interface for pop-ups (not counting external tweaking utilities) is complicated, confusing and counter productive. Let alone that you can prevent pop-ups only, not the window resizing and Favourite addition.

As for the per site based blocking, I think it's useful but personally I prefere a generic blocking (without completely disabling javascript).
