Mozilla: The Browser with Everything and the Kitchen Sink

Wednesday February 19th, 2003

For years, many of Mozilla's detractors have complained that Mozilla is too bloated with useless features. "Mozilla has everything but the kitchen sink," they retort. Well they're wrong because the kitchen sink will soon be coming to a Mozilla browser near you!

Makali writes: "A patch for Bug 122411 got a super-review today meaning that Mozilla (and presumably the next release of Netscape) will now have a kitchen sink. While in good humour and a rather cute touch, this does make me wonder how much time developers spend adding features of dubious value to our favourite browser when it still doesn't correctly support HTML 4.01." Makali offers up bug 915 as an example of a long-standing standards-compliance bug. Please remember that this bug, like all bugs, doesn't need to be spammed with useless comments.

You should see a text-rendered kitchen sink, complete with a tap and a running-water effect.

"It's got everything but the kitchen sink" is an old expression - used, for example - if you've just bought a car with every conceivable accessory.

Since Mozilla has a lot of features, one might have also said "Mozilla has everything but the kitchen sink", except now it really does have a kitchen sink.
