#26 'Little of value'?

Hellllllllllllo, troll.

Many of us still use the Mozilla suite browser, because we still like it better than Firefox. Way before Firefox/Firebird/Phoenix was even vaguely usable, a huge number of people were finding something 'of value' in the Mozilla suite browser. IMO, the Mozilla browser is still second to none and will continue in that position at least until Firebird 1.0.

(I've been using Mozilla for a good many of those five years, and much enjoying not having to use IE with its awful interface and annoying security flaws. That's a significant value to me.)

And if you believe that the Gecko layout engine and XUL are 'little of value' then clearly you haven't been using Firefox or Thunderbird recently. How about Bugzilla? Is that 'little of value'? Funny how we're just beginning to start using it in my workplace, I would have thought we'd have chosen something with more... you know... value.

Anyway, so the fact that - shockingly - some people are endeavouring to make the new stuff better than the old stuff, does not in any way indicate that the old stuff was 'little of value'.
