The start page is looking pretty cool. Make sure that you hover above the 'Parties' link on the main page. :-)

We had hacks all over the place to get it working, we had to because of lack of mozilla/netscape support. We also had a partly working widget called <tabbedbrowser> I asked Hyatt questions on IRC #mozilla for help, I have logged all our conversations for the record, and than at once, bang, David Hyatt basically copied my idea by writing an XBL widget called <tabbrowser> He did this after we had 45.000 downloads of a specific version and this conversation on #mozilla

<hyatt> HJ: do you have a patent claim or does anyone else? <HJ> hyatt: No I don't and I'm not aware of other claims <hyatt> HJ: well it doesn't matter <steve> hyatt: when can we expect this to go into the three, I really like multizilla <HJ> steve: it's MultiZilla <steve> nod

But now it looks as if we're braindead or something. And I don't thing that's fair to us and all MultiZilla users. Remember, people still use 0.9.5 because of our MultiZilla version for it, think about that!

It's just fair to say that our version was the first tabbed browser UI for mozilla and netscape, and that our version worked so well that they implemented parts of it, and that's a fact. They simply removed this sepecific part of text from a prior draft, for crying out load.
