Full Article Attached Rapid Pace of Development for Mozilla Firebird

Sunday August 17th, 2003

If you haven't downloaded a Mozilla Firebird nightly build in the last few weeks, you may be surprised to discover how many enhancements the application has received. In this extended full article, MozillaZine takes a look at some of Firebird's more interesting recent improvements, including support for sidebar panels with webpage content and a selector for alternative stylesheets. Remember that you need to be using a nightly build and not a milestone release to see these new features in action. Refer to a resource such as The Burning Edge if you need help deciding which nightly to download and discuss Firebird with other followers of the project in our Mozilla Firebird forums.

hmmm, yes i agree the rightclick context menu IS getting a bit big! Maybe we shoudl take a leaf out of Symbian's book on this one. I have a SonyEricsson P800 phone, and there is an intrestign idea I gleaned from that platform. For an image, we could have two context menu items, "Send Image" and "Send Link". Under those we can have a cascading menu, or secondary dialoge which selects a target, for example on Send link you coudl have targets of "Clipboard, email, text, etc" and for Send File, you could have targets of "File, Email, FTP, x-drive, My Pictures". This menu can be extended by extensions or plugins, for example the MSNMessenger extension could add a MSN Messenger target to the target list, together with people online on your buddy list. a future FTP extension coudl automatically allow u to save directly to a FTP location.
