'PC World' Looks at Mozilla Firefox 0.8

Thursday April 1st, 2004

The May 2004 issue of PC World features a short article about Mozilla Firefox 0.8. Reviewer Tom Spring likes the new download manager and the range of extensions available but concludes that the browser "remains too geeky for nontechies" he said it took him half an hour to master toolbar customisation.

Customizing immediate aspects of the UI is expected for most program. This would include displaying the toolbars, their various items, and other aspects of the display such as status bar. The menu system is not immediate; people don't expect to customize it (unless via using drag-n-drop on bookmarks to rearrange them, a direct analog to customizing shortcuts in menus). Customizing it isn't bad, but it's not likely to be used much, so it belongs in an extension, if anywhere.
