mozptch Utility Helps System Administrators Configure and Maintain Mozilla Installations

Tuesday May 4th, 2004

Detlef Oertel wrote in to tell us about mozptch, an automatic configuration utility for Mozilla. Designed for maintaining large numbers of Mozilla installations, mozptch allows system administrators to specify details such as where profiles are stored, set arbitary preferences and configure helper applications. It currently only runs in Windows but a Linux version is planned.

I have already received several emails from people who were looking for a way to deploy Mozilla in a school/office environment. Together, we figured out how to to that, but I wish I had known about mozptch back then. This would have saved everyone a lot of time.

IMHO, the lack of ease of deploying Mozilla in these environments really sets Mozilla back.
