Full Article Attached Mozilla Minotaur Project Formally Launched

Monday March 24th, 2003

In a newsgroup posting, Scott MacGregor has formally announced the launch of Minotaur, a project to create a stand-alone mail client based on the Mozilla suite's Mail & Newsgroups component. While Minotaur will have largely the same feature set as Mail & Newsgroups, it will sport a simpler and more customizable user interface, much like the Phoenix redesign of the Mozilla browser. The revitalised Minotaur project combines the work of both the original Minotaur effort — which aimed to build a stand-alone version of Mail & Newsgroups — with that of Thunderbird, an enterprise intended to create a mail client to accompany Phoenix.

>What Mozilla browser features did you miss when you're using Phoenix?

I'll take that one. I use Phoenix for my normal browsing, but when doing web development I miss the CSS/HTML sidebars, Venkman, and the DOM Inspector. I also miss the Page Info screen opening up at a useable width so I don't have to resize it.

When developing extensions, I really miss the DOM Inspector and I also miss being able to disable the XUL cache.

I miss having a regular point release for the browser. ;]
