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.

#65 This is only a part of my text, where is the rest?

Thanks for the explanation, but the most important part of my text is missing. I guess my copy/paste action failed. Man I really hate this. I was trying to say that a lot of people like to know what the exact file size, startup time and new window opening times are. I even made a test file. I took the time to explain things here but heck, it's gone.

Asa, I made QuickPrefs for Phoenix (<>) so I don't hate Phoenix but support it even. I know exactly what Phoenix is, what it can and can't do compaired to mozilla.

Here is a link to a smaller (7.9MB zip file and 15.2MB installed) and faster mozilla version but windows only!. It is based on todays nightly and I called it fastmoz. <>

I removed 558 files and 1.725.009 bytes from the comm.jar/en-US.jar and classic.jar in under 45 mins ;) I removed the Sidebar and Side Navigation (links) Toolbar, just like Phoenix did :-)

This is just a little demonstration of yet another 'browser/XUL application' You don't have to be Blake or Hyatt to make your own browser, anybody can do this :-)
