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.

Sorry blake, didn't mean it in that perspective.

I guess what I was getting at, is that while Mozilla matures, it is directly reflected in phoenix as it get's it's code from the trunk (correct me if I'm wrong). If progress slows down on Mozilla, phoenix will not "slow down" but nor would it get the core "under the hood" advancements of the trunk. (eg if Type ahead wasn't implemented in Moz, would phoenix have gotten it? don't think so.).

Again, I am not bashing anyone, I personally prefer Phoenix (great job with it Blake!!) although I suffer from Moz's Mail addiction. But in my "point of view" I would like to see some more detailed info on what's going on in Gecko/Mozilla which reflects upon every Mozilla based browser out there, posted here at mozillazine like it was in the 90's and early 2000.

Cheers, and sorry if I offended anyone or anything to that degree!
