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.

first of all: i don't use IE anymore, too... only if i'm forced to, but usually i just don't go to those sites, or to check out, how IE messes up a page, i've written.

but to your question: it has pop-up blocking and such restrictions, without disableling JS alltogether. i don't know the details, as i've mentioned above, i don't use it. i just wanted to point out that IE has the feature. it does not have the GUI (probably becuase of some marketing guys issues with them, as mentioned in the last post). and remember: good old mozilla also has lots of nifty features only accessible only in form of the prefs.js or similar.

and the point was all about this one: can we afford to offer such GUI since AOL might not like that? we're not netscape, sure, and i personally think it's cool, but won't the advertisers invent even worse ads we can't block? just wanted to point that out. MS can't affort to have this GUI. netscape will not do this too, i assume. they all earn money. we don't. can we? should we? that's the point we're discussing here =)
