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.

Why the personal attack in the title of your message? Was there a need for this? I welcome constructive criticism, however, when your response begins with "GET A LIFE" (all caps), then anything you say after that is falling on deaf ears. Part of my job desciption as the technology liason requires me to follow-up and comment on the state of Mozilla/Netscape from a corporate perspective since I am the key design architech of our web-based development effort. Perhaps if you lent your Mozilla devt time more wisely to something that actually IMPROVED the codebase, we wouldn't be having this discussion in the first place?
