Time Magazine Article on Mozilla

I guess so called 'geek features' like tabbed browsing and pop-up blocking aren't so geeky afterall. Check out a scan of the print version and read the article over on"

#41 could do much better

I think part of the problem is that it is just too damn hard to understand the code in Mozilla, so even people who know how to code (like me) don't have a clue where to begin.<p> or could do a lot better if they would provide some articles covering the basics of mozilla programming - e.g. what all the different variable types are (why are there so many string types for example); what the flow is in mozilla - starting up, clicking on a link; some examples of changing the code - e.g. this is how we added feature X to mozilla; at least something so people have a clue where to look and how to change things.<p>A few more examples, like how to read/write from a file, how to check a preference setting, how to pop up a dialogue...things that may be obvious to mozilla developers, but not to people trying to help out. I am sure then you would get a lot more developers helping out.
