Media Reaction to New Mozilla Roadmap Proposal

Thursday April 3rd, 2003

Apart from MozillaZine, Slashdot was the first news outlet to report on Mozilla's new Roadmap proposal. The story was also covered by several other sites, including OSNews, Neowin.net, LWN.net and The Mac Observer. Paul Festa of CNET News.com felt the need bring up the Safari/KHTML "snub" again but did go to the trouble of getting some quotes. The Register got confused and reported that XUL is going away, while BetaNews also mixed up some details about XUL and its relationship to XPFE (for the lowdown, read Boris Zbarsky's and Jason Kersey's messages). Internet Week's article was generally fine except that it reported that Mozilla is currently based on the Netscape codebase. Meanwhile, InternetNews decided that Mozilla has been "plagued with conflicting hacker troubles," a claim repeated by the more mainstream Sydney Morning Herald (or The Age if you prefer Melbourne).

How CNET.com can claim any credibility and still employ this asshole, I will never know.
