Reporting and Nominating Bugs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0

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.

The point is that if you have modular applications you will need interapplication communication. Thats the place where Ben mentioned DDE. The mozilla suite however did to a lesser degree depend on interapplication communication as it could do it with intraapplication communication. So there was little work done in this direction. To ensure that Ben's vision becomes true you will need working communication protocols. Given the difference in version numbers between ff and tb or nvu it is very likely that tb or nvu will meet a ff 1.0. Then it would be cool if they could communicate. I am a little bit sceptical that you can attach these not correctly implemented protocolls afterwards with an extension to a ff 1.0. So it might be necessary to do some work before 1.0. In order to give people a starting point I posted the url.
