MozillaZine Readers Give New Mozilla Website a 7.4

Monday December 29th, 2003

In our previous poll, we asked you to rate the new Mozilla website on a scale of 1 to 10. 3,168 people voted, giving the new site a mean average of 7.4 and a modal score of 8. The variance of the votes was 4.4 and the standard deviation was 2.1. All in all, it looks like you like the new site then.

For our final poll of the year, we want you to pick the most significant event for the Mozilla project of 2003. There's five developments to choose from, including the major Roadmap update unveiled in April, the Firebird naming conflict, the launch of the Mozilla Foundation, the dismantling of Netscape Communications Corporation and the Mozilla Foundation's new end user focus. Pick one, vote and see which event other readers regard as the most significant. Results in the new year.

That is indeed a good reason for not having them linked from anywhere obvious, as they were before.

However, they should still be linked from somewhere - the Mozilla nightlies are linked from the developers section. The Mozilla website is also supposed to have all the docs for developers and QA work, and those people should be able to find a nightly. Of course, that's not so important, because those people can generally figure these things out.

But the fact that all the useful info for Firebird and Thunderbird is on texturiser.net is in itself silly. That should all be on Mozilla.org as well, along with plugin docs and some other bits that are on mozdev. That stuff is on other sites because it's more practical to maintain it that way with the current Mozilla system - that shouldn't be the case.
