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.

#24 We are all wasting time, obviously

I see that I am wasting my time too. Yes it is "your" product and not a democracy - I am aware of that. Still I have just tried to say what I think would be reasonable and important - based on about 20 years in the IT business, application analysis and design and UI design for major companies and as freelance developer who had to live from the satisfaction of his customers with the UI and who maybe knows a tiny bit about these issues by now. Maybe I listen to different people than you do. And I love how you repeatedly counter arguments with insights like "straw men", "joe-expert-commentator", "read the rave reviews" etc. To answer the only factual argument that you made: I never said integration into a monolith should be done (reread my post). I said integration of *functionality* is important and much of it is missing even in the suite. But a monolith with some integration is still better than solving just the technical part and then having three programs with nearly none. How the integration is done technically is not important. THAT it is done is what is important.
