Demise of Netscape Voted Most Significant Mozilla Event of 2003

Sunday January 11th, 2004

Last month, we asked you what you thought was the most significant event for the Mozilla project in 2003. The top choice was the demise of Netscape, which received 35% of the 1,947 votes cast. The launch of the Mozilla Foundation came second, with 29%, followed by the new end user focus (16%) and the new Roadmap (12%). The Firebird naming conflict finished in last place, with only 4% of voters considering it to be the most important event of last year.

For our first poll of 2004, we've picked five of the most popular Mozilla development books and want you to tell us which you think is the best. Choose from the Netscape Mozilla Source Code Guide, Essential XUL Programming, Creating Applications with Mozilla, Creating XPCOM Components or Rapid Application Development with Mozilla and watch the results to see which Mozilla book other readers favour.

Sure they are important, and perhaps for IE users they are more familiar. But I've been a NS user sinde the gold era, and get used to the suite. Also, that os "speed".. For example, I have to wait for Navigator to load, but if then I open MailNews, it doesn't even last a second. If you open Thunderbird, yo have to wait as you waited with Firebird. As the most part of the code is the same, I don't see any reason for these sort of flame wars... What is this? "MOZILLA SUX, FIREBIRD ROCKS"... It's all the seame, they use the same engine, are developed by (mostly) the same people, share the same license, are mantained by the same foundation...
