Requireing GNOME libs isn't much of a limitation.
Besides, how many useful programs can you find that
requires Qt, but not KDElibs?
Actually, I think it is more important to give IE a run for
its worship as quickly as possible and worry about
not needing GNOME libs later.
Scrap Moz. Keep Gecko
I think I agree with the authour. The future could be
My two cents on how to deal with the situation:
Scrap Mozilla. Take the Gecko part and start a new
project dealing with a GPL'ed Gecko only.
It's much smaller than the whole Mozilla project and
seems far more interesting to work with too.
Reduce Gecko to a bononized rendering module
and let it use other modules for HTML, Java,
I don't know how feasible this is. Maybe Gecko is
already structured this way? IANotP (I Am Not on
the Project). But: it would let anyone with a time
limit write his favourite plugin .so that interprets
some WhizBang nonsense such as Flash and still
not have to worry about a browser or even HTML.
As for letting webadmins know their sites stink: I
don't think so. We're still a fringe and fringe people
usually get little attention unless they prove
themselves. Giving negative feedback sure is NOT a
way to prove anything.
