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.

I wonder if 90% of pages you view are plain text optimized for Mozilla 5.0. In my experience, it still sucks big time: - very slow; - craches on some sites and during some actions; - some widgets are disabled on some sites; - items on a page swing from side to side like crazy, thanks to the "wonderful" reflow rendering; - sent email messages are not stored => no feedback at all about success of an operation.

I'd say in its current state Mozilla is a very good prototype but not nearly good enough for real usage. Maybe this is a definition of an Alpha software?
