MozillaZine Readers Tell Us Which Mozilla Components They Use

Tuesday February 18th, 2003

For our last poll, we asked you to tell us which Mozilla components you use. 3,292 people responded with the most common combination being regular use of Navigator and Mail & Newsgroups with occasional use of the other components (25%). Meanwhile, 20% opted for Navigator only while 17% use Phoenix or Chimera exclusively. The next most popular choice was regular use of Navigator and Mail & Newsgroups with the other components being left untouched (15%). 9% of voters use Navigator regularly and occasionally use Mail & Newsgroups or some of the other components, 3% say they use all the components regularly and 2% just use Mail & Newsgroups. Finally, 2% of you use some other strange combination, 2% just like to troll Mozilla fan sites and 1% use telnet to port 80.

Here at MozillaZine, we know that a little bit of social pressure goes a long way. So, to match our shameless request for donations, we want you all to tell us how much you've donated. You have all donated, right? See, it's working already! Vote (preferably honestly) and watch the latest results to see how you compare to everyone else.

It is wholly unreasonable to expect the Mozilla Suite components to be even remotely best in class. Just developing a best-in-class browser is a monumental undertaking. To distract a development group with numerous unrelated components (e.g., mail, news, chat, compose) guarantees mediocrity.
