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.

I Can't understand this desire that some people have to jetison the Suite so more people will have to work on the Birds. Folks this project depends on people contributing of their on free will, you can't order them to work on the parts that suit your fancy. Dropping the suite might result in someone who was intrested in it working on the birds. It also might result in them telling you what part of your body you can insert the birds into when they leave the project for something that intrests them, or in a fork where you have two projects, a suite and the birds, who's code bases grow apart so that work from one can't be moved over to the other.
