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.

I did this as a lark. A few other non-coders took up the banner and actually added some nifty stuff to it, and a couple devs thought it funny enough to r= and sr= it. Unfortunately, the patches that got it weren't mozilla-conditional, so it's nto going anywhere for a while

And for the whole 15 minutes various people spent on it, I guarantee you it brightened someone's day. If you think time not spent on coding is a waste, then why the hell are you posting here, rather than fixing bugs?
