Great Warpzilla Screenshots

Wednesday June 9th, 1999

Paulo Dias has great news and screenshots on their OS/2 port of Mozilla.

"...some news from John Fairhurst of the warpzilla project (OS/2 mozzila port): 'Warpzilla is currently floating around the m6 level (that is, on parity with the main platforms) with a few minor & one major exception (see below). I've stuck a couple of screenshots of the browser here -- the editor & various other minor applications seem to work; messenger brings up a 3-pane window but I haven't quite figured out how to point it at a mail- or newsserver.

The major exception is a strange kind of PM resource leak -- after quitting the program, random bits of windows stop painting properly,almost as though the stock of micro cached presentation spaces had been used up. This started happening back in January, but subsequently fixed itself; it's back.'

The screenshots are awesome.. check them out..."

You are replying to this message

"May I suggest using tabbed paines? "

according to the tab widget requirements <http://www.mozilla.org/xp…abwidgetrequirements.html>

The authors at this time specifically do not intend to implement these arguably desirable features

* vertical tabs

* multiple rows of tabs

* scrolling tabs

* inline editing of the tab text (hey, we're trying to be complete!)

either of the top three would probably be needed to properly implement tabs in what will usually be a very skinny window. besides, tabs would only allow one open at a time, colapsability would be much more flexible (IMHO at least)
