Ars Technica Review of Mozilla 1.0

Wednesday July 31st, 2002

No fewer than six people wrote in to tell us about Ars Technica's in-depth review of Mozilla 1.0. As well as rating the Windows version of Mozilla, the article also examines the success of the Mozilla project as a whole. When looking at the product, Gecko was highly praised but Navigator and Mail & Newsgroups came in for criticism. However, the review is much more positive about the Mozilla project, declaring it as "nothing less than a resounding success."

"Still puzzles me why he describes XBL as non W3C standard. If my memory serves me well, W3C had standardised XBL about a year ago. Or it was something else?"

Actually, I think XBL was submitted to the W3C as a suggestion. It's now kept as a W3C Note at <http://www.w3.org/TR/xbl/> . According to the Status of this Document section:

"This NOTE was submitted to the World Wide Web Consortium (see Submission Request, W3C Staff Comment) on 2001-01-12 with the intention that the W3C use it as a basis for furthering the work on BECSS ....
