Is M12 Alpha?
Thursday December 2nd, 1999
That's what the mozilla developers would like to know. If you're a member of mozillaZine, you can participate in a survey to help gauge our readers' feelings regarding the current pre-M12 builds. If you're not a member, it's easy to become one (and free, too). Just visit our members page and follow the instructions.
Then, visit the survey page, and answer all the questions. You will need to be a member to see the survey results, and you cannot see the results until after you have voted.
If you don't have a current pre-M12 build, you can grab the latest nightly build from our builds page.
If you have tried the builds, but haven't tried things like mail or news, please vote 10 for those questions pertaining to email or newsgroup usage.

Hmmm, I'm not entirely sure if this is appropriate, but when a product reaches Alpha stage a considerable additional amount of people will start testing it. It's my concern that with the performance-state which Mozilla (Mac OS) is in right now will scare off alot of people. I'm really not that aware of performance on other platforms, though. But I think this at least should be taken into consideration.
Albeit my above worry I should say that in testing the M12 builds I've seen great signs of improvement in the performance departement.
So if "we" are to be a bit conservative, I'd say M12.5 (just an abstract of course) would be more suitable for an Alpha.
