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 think you are wrong. Netscape 6.x releases were always more polished than the Mozilla branches they were based on. Besides the polishing, there were additional features like simple mapi that only very recently started to work on Mozilla. They were not major rewrites, of course.

Netscape and other corporate contributors aren't that foolish to make Mozilla a full open source browser. If not and Mozilla becomes a fully functional browser, how do you expect from them to pay off their investment?
