Being part of the Mozilla project is really cool. There's a constant improvement in the application! Internet Explorer is a great browser too, but it havn't really improved much lately. The Internet Explorer team seem to be figting security breaches, etc. Mozilla on the other hand, build on a secure foundation, keep improving the browser. Making it faster, smaller and cooler!
Here are some of the checkins to Mozilla made this morning:
- leaking GDIs when table cell contains an image
- Freetype code leaks all over
- XBL needs better URLs and line numbers Fixes stuff like this: "chrome://bar.xml#whatever (getter)"
- nsImageLoadingContent shouldn't malloc as much
- Spring cleaning of unused XPCOM code
- Cookie leak regression
You can always see all of the checkins from the last 24 hours here!
Yep. I talked about it tonight at a User Group presentation. ;)Comment by Chris Pirillo at June 24, 2003 09:30 AM | Permalink

"What's your role in Mozilla? You only work on the installer right?"
"Only" isn't a particularly accurate word :-) Gemal is also the number 1 bug reporter in all of Bugzilla with more than 2000 bugs filed. He's very active in installer bug triage and testing.

You can also use
instead of the direct bonsai link.
It's only updated once per day but the overview is better.
Like the MozillaNews Bonsai overview. My script at http://backprop.net/mozilla/bonsaibugs/ also polls bonsai daily for bug references. It now does this for several different branches/products.Comment by Robert Wall at June 27, 2003 02:32 PM | Permalink
