Mozilla fever!

Woohoo! I'm so proud of the Mozilla project. Today, the Mozilla team announced it's intentions to take Mozilla to the next level. The Mozilla Suite will be broken in to major subcomponents:</p>

  • A standalone browser based on the mozilla/toolkit XUL user interface named Phoenix
  • A standalone mail component also based on mozilla/toolkit name Thunderbird
  • A rock solid "Gecko Runtime Environment" on which the above applications and others like Calendar, Composer, and ChatZilla can all run (kind of like the Java Run Time environment, except Gecko is a Javascript, XUL, memory management and networking interface.)

There are additionally plans to port Venkman and the DOM Inspector over to Phoenix. The Mozilla team also wants to make the individual components more modular. There's even some mention that Scalable Vector Graphics (YES!) will be a major priority to be included in the Gecko Runtime Environment (GRE). (This may finally mean device independant web/interface design.)

Death to Internet Explorer!

I read this news too at MozillaZine today, and I am very excited. They are even replacing the Mozilla 1.0 trunck with Mozilla 1.4. I hate IE and MacroSucks (MicroSoft) products in general. Open source software like Linux and Mozilla rules!
