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.

#77 Thanks for the clarifications

Asa, I agree with the first two but I'm either an expert or that's not the case and you're wrong. Why? My example show at least some performanche gain in both startup time and opening of new windows!

Now, I have to continue my search for speed after all this info. I just need to know what makes mozilla slower, or Phoenix faster than mozilla. Yeah I know, I am a geek. I looked and compaired every single JavaScript function and XBL binding that was changed for Phoenix, and I tell you this, it's no surprise to me. Not at all.

I still have this IRC #mozilla log file, and that is almost a year old now, where I ask David Hyatt about file access performanche improvements, overlays files and so on. What do you think he did?

So I am an expert, let the game begin.

Who's in favor for a new project? FastMoz will be it's name. Smaller, faster and 100% compatible to all current add-ons, themes and stuff like DOM Inspector, JS Debugger, Chatzilla, Composer, Mail & NewsGroups and Addressbook!

Any takers here?
