Looking for that Interview with Chris Hofmann that Slashdot Mentioned?

Friday November 12th, 1999

Slashdot had a piece online this morning about Mozilla, with a link to an interview with Chris Hofmann of the Mozilla team. However,the server was soon Slashdotted, and no one could get on to the site. We have permission to mirror the Evolt page with Chris's comments, so if you are interested in reading an update on the state of Mozilla, click here. Thanks to Daniel Cody of for allowing us to post the article.

Is that it makes it look dated really fast.. Imean, who wants to be using Netscape 2000 in 2002? I'd think to be worthwhile and still look cutting edge, the 2000 product would need to come out in 1999. Kinda like how magazines come out a month earlier than the publishing date? So they look newer.

The other problem with the year (2000, etc) is that it doesn't really support the possibility of multiple updates per year or whatever (i guess you could do "service packs")...

We need something better. Something no one's done-- a clear way of indicating version.... hmm
