Why not put it on the ScreenShots page

Uh, that's like a blank window with text-labelled forward and back buttons, and a URL way at the bottom. I know everyone has to start somewhere, but don't you usally wait for a useful milestone, like vaguely rendering an actual web page, before posting a screenshot?

What's there now looks like it could have been coded in 10 minutes.

Ibid,

There's a lot more underneath than just throwing a window up on a screen. There's a ton of code in place, and getting it all to compile and bring up a window is _a good thing_, and a major accomplishment. Even though the screenshot may not look like much, as they said on the webpage, it will start coming together quickly now, and I can imagine we'll have more screenshots coming over the next few weeks as more of the code is enabled.

Mozilla ported successfully to yet _another_ OS by third-party coders is a positive step for Mozilla, and I look forward to seeing the continuing progress of BeZilla.

never ever start with the FE all the real chalenges are with the BackEnd. Besides why have a FE allready when so many fetures are yet to be implemented. chrome and the like. but chrome is probbly only for the Win32 people.

some sort of frontend should be among the *first* things. having something that runs and produces output keeps developers motivated. in a free software project, that matters more than it otherwise might.

Actually, the BeZilla folks didn't do the FE first; they've already got the back-end stuff working.
