Full Article Attached New tinderstatus Tool Available

Thursday January 16th, 2003

In a newsgroup posting, Myk Melez announced the availability of tinderstatus, a new browser extension that allows you to quickly see the current status of the SeaMonkey tree. The extension should be particularly useful for sheriffs (those assigned to watch over the tree), hackers who check in a lot of code and people who like pretty icons in their status bar.

You can install the extension in Mozilla, Phoenix and Netscape. Note that the current version does not include an uninstaller.

"[Netscape] do not want many features that already are in Phoenix (and really needed and waited features!)" "Point me to one place where someone ported a Phoenix change over to Mozilla and it was rejected by a reviewer or Module Owner employed by Netscape. You're just making this up with nothing to support it. "

1. Customizeble toolbar 2. Form filler a-la IE

etc. There are more and more I just cannot remember since I'm a Mozilla user.


"[Netscape] do not want a new splash-screen for mozilla That's total bs. The splash screen has nothing to do with what Netscape wants or doesn't want. They don't use it and they don't care what it looks like., however, does. There are licensing issues, there are unity of UI design issues, but there is absolutely no Netscape involvement in this issue (with maybe the exception that people inside Netscape would like to see the end of the use of the old-style green lizard)."

I personally do not care about the splash screen, I install to my custumers NN7.01 (currently), since I believe it's a suite that should be widly distributed and I can live with any splash. But the ignorance for mozilla users is awfull. Look at the bug - tons of the splash screens, tons of votes, but no one cares to solve this most voted bug. I _believe_ Netscape does not want Mozilla becomes popular to end-user (but the fact is that Mozilla have a way more popularity than Netscape does) and this is some sort of barricade. I believe any more good looking splash will make people happy, but no activitie at all form stuff. There already was a petice made, but... Asa, if I'm not right please explaine to me why a most wanted issue is not yet fixed with all that splash available? When will it be fixed. The way out way you, at select usable splashes and make a voting on mozillazine. That's it! What's the problem?


"[Netscape] do not want other fixes I was ready to contribute for..." Point me to your fixes that were denied by a reviwere or a Module Owner employed by Netscape. I challenge you to point me to a single patch you've done that was rejected because Netscape didn't want it.

They were not mine, but from a programmer, we agreed that I make his work on mozilla more intresting with some paiments by me. I cannot say here what were sayd to him. If he want's he say it itself.


"Isn't this a major point why Apple desided to go with KHTML? Is Mozilla independent? " No and yes.

Sure no and yes, but it was a big point that maybe was the main reason.
