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.

Sure some of the press is saying bad things about Mozilla, but it really does not matter right now. If they criticize the effort after the first product release, then we better worry, but we all know that is not going to happen.

I am personally a little scared to see so many bugs still in the product at this stage, but I suppose it is just normal. I say this because on my NT machine, the images come up garbled on sites with layers. Yes, I have reported the bug, and hopefully it will get taken care of. I see all the open buds remaining, and it looks so overwhelming, and I know that fixing bugs can be very time consuming and tedious.

However, I am still very confident in Mozilla, and hope the organization will expand to bigger and better projects in addition to working on the web browser suite.
