Mike Pinkerton does a great job of summing up the history of Mozilla, Chimera, and Camino on MacOS. His post describes the various Mac project codenames and answers some questions that I see from time to time like “Why doesn’t Mozilla run on OS 9?”.
There’s a great discussion on the Seamonkey newsgroup about the mission of Mozilla.org and the future of Mozilla technologies. It’s great to see a high level discussion like this. It’s worth a read if you have more that a passing interest in Mozilla development. Here’s the thread on Google Groups, but it won’t be as up to date as the above newsgroup link.
Announcing a Very Special Mozilla Theme! This theme is based on Pinstripe and follows the Aqua Human Interface Guidelines to the letter:
“In order to make toolbar icons easily distinguishable from one another, each icon should be a distinct animal. Use real-world objects (such as a moose) to facilitate quick recognition by users.”
Can anyone shed some light on why Phoenix on the Mac compiles just fine but gives a segmentation fault when I try to run the phoenix-bin file? I used the mozilla-bin file from a previous build of Mozilla in place of the bad phoenix-bin and to my surprise it seems to work. This probably causes problems that I haven’t run across yet.
