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.

It maybe fun for developers to play but it does not add to good code. I thought that it was really lame when I heard that there was a flight simulator in excel. Easter eggs is one of those things Microsoft does that indicates that thier software was only designed to be used in a non-corporate enviroment. So this is minor but if this actually gets aproved, it will indicate that the core developers do not have a philosophy of "lean and clean".
