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.
Ok, after playing with the latest version for a bit today (and reporting a CSS bug, which is probably either a duplicate or me not understanding how it's supposed to work, but what the hell), I finally filled in the survey.
I don't use Mozilla for reading email or reading/posting news, so I left those options as 10... but I *would* like to use it for sending email, by which I mean, clicking on mailto: links and having things work.
Sadly, it appears to launch the internal mail client rather than my Windows-default mail client [i.e. the one I actually use]. Hence it's all but useless for sending mail (okay, so I could maybe configure it, but why should I have to configure mail twice? Does it support MS Exchange servers anyway?), and I gave it a 2.
I really hope this'll change for release... I know 4.7 sucks in the same way but this is pretty important in companies or institutions which use Outlook (etc.) for their internal mail...
