Reporting and Nominating Bugs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Thursday April 29th, 2004

This will allow the FDT (heh) to develop an action plan for the milestones between now and 1.0, prioritize bugs and so on. It's essential that people start doing this now, rather than later, otherwise bugs might slip through the cracks!" Further details are available in Ben's posting to the Firefox forums.

#12 Sure.

I did not invest my time to write that "verbose diatribe" to piss you off, you know. I always thought that the Mozilla project is a great opportunity to create something new, and I mean new functionally, not technically, something that goes beyond "a browser and a mail app". I am concerned, because I have been following, promoting, and contributing to the Mozilla project for several years now. I have never heard a reasonable argument why to target exactly that segment of the browser market. But if you think that what I said can be ignored, fine, ignore it. Look at those news snipes a bit longer a be happy. Meanwhile, true innovation will happen elsewhere. The time is ripe for an application that is organized around what the user wants to accomplish, not how to technically implement it. And if no other will come up with a solution to this, at some point it will be MS. Mozilla had an opportunity to go that way and it missed it. I really do not want to raise thoughts any longer which I think should at least be discussed to get waved off as somebody who is spoiling the fun. Do as you please and we will see if you were right in 5 years.
