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.


#6 I would of voted for the roadmap....

But nothing is being done to implement it. They said 1.5 would be the changeover time. Then 1.6. Now it's somewhere post-1.7.

As I've said again and again, Mozilla needs to refer to the new products as Mozilla 2.0. This will give some distinction between the products. It also means people who like SeaMonkey (ugh) can continue work on the 1.x branch. I mean a complete change in the browsers basis and user experience is what I call enough for a 2.0 release.
