Shock as MozillaZine Readers Turn to Slashdot for Accurate Information

Thursday October 31st, 2002

For our last poll, we asked you where else you go to get Mozilla news. 848 of you answered with Slashdot getting 30% of the vote, almost twice as much as its nearest rival, MozillaNews, with 17%. The third-placed 'None of the above' option was favoured by 16% of you, which frankly tells us very little. FUD specialist MozillaQuest came in fifth with 8% of the vote, which concerns us slightly. 5% of you rely on mainstream tech news sites such as CNET's or eWeek while 4% of you prefer the weblog style of Blogzilla. Newcomers Planet Mozilla and MozFan didn't do so well with 1% and 0% of the vote respectively. NewsForge, with 1%, also did surprisingly badly, especially considering the amount of news we steal from them. Finally, 14% of you just go wherever telnet to port 80 will take you.

For our next poll, we'd like to know what your favourite Phoenix theme is. The options are taken from the lists at the mozdev Themes project and David Tenser's Phoenix Help so don't blame us if your favourite theme isn't listed. Go and vote now or just sit on the fence and watch the latest results.

#44 Another example?

This may be an extensions issue more than Phoenix fault, but extensions don't seem to behave the same way in Phoenix as they do in Mozilla. I can't seem to find a way to customize the MouseGestures to use the right mouse button (I don't like to open a new window everytime I select text). There seems to only be the option to uninstall.

I also can't press F8 to hide/unhide the Prefs bar. In fact there seems to be no way to hide it.

All in all though, Phoenix has progressed quite a lot more than I expected. I was disappointed at first because I've been spoiled by Mozilla.
