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.

#90 Ok, once again...

Ah, High School, now I see :-)

Blake, I didn't copied the Phoenix tree in 45 minutes, because that would take me less than 5 minutes. Not one single file was copied from the Phoenix tree. In fact, all Phoenix files, or almost all of them, are Mozilla files, not Phoenix.

Also, what do I need to back up, in case I just copied the Phoenix tree? You already downloaded and installed my fastmoz example, at least that is what you wrote in one of your comments, so you had proof of concept.

Again, I like the Phoenix project but I'm disappointed about the lack of mozilla support, that's my point. You couldn't find it but now you know. Why not speedup mozilla in stead of Phoenix? Is that because of a) you don't support Mac or b) you don't have to comply to all Netscape standards or c) pick you choice.

I'm not attacking you nor anybody else in the Phoenix team. I already wrote that in one of my comments, I'm only playing for the bad guy here. You seem to miss that time after time.

Do I want a faster browser? Sure, why not, but I only wonder *if* that will be ever noticeable on a bloody fast system. Do I support the Phoenix team, sure why not? I was a regular visitor on #phoenix and tried to help other Phoenix users, when you and other team members where at sleep. You must have seen me at least several times.

Blake, are you worried that 'someone' can do the same things you do and he/she might even be better than you? Is that why you are so hostile to other people?

Remember, weakness goes hand in hand with an aggressive mind.
