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.

I really do not get the situation with Phoenix...

I begin to think that Netscape made Mozilla just for releasing own branded versions. They do not want many features that already are in Phoenix (and really needed and waited features!), they do not want a new splash-screen for mozilla, they do not want other fixes I was ready to contribute for... What's the point of being open source, but when community does not have any influence what and when something will happends in the project.

Isn't this a major point why Apple desided to go with KHTML? Is Mozilla independent?

For now I think Netscape made Mozilla just for using thousands of free testers and some free development. Can someone comment on this?
