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.

#65 you're missing the point...

this is cross platform software. it works everywhere. the only code that doesn't is where it hooks in to the OS.

Mozilla used to be developed in a way similar to what you describe (although I won't call it "ported", as each FE project ran concurrently), and there were simply not the resources to achieve the desired results. Consumers have already suffered - through the lack of features on some platforms.

This way, everyone gets a fair go, everyone gets an identical product, everyone gets a browser at the same time.
