Firefox 1.5 is there! (or will be in a seconds)

Yes, yes, yes!
Mozilla Firefox 1.5 is ready and waiting for you at* (cute, new design!) and the Polish version is at*.

It’s a huge release. We were working on Firefox 1.0 for years, and after we released it, we received feedback from tens of thousands of users. And that’s what we were working on for last year. This feedback.

So now, in front of your door, there is Firefox 1.5. The best available browser ever released.**

Jon S. von Tetzchner – wywiad

Mam nadzieje, że większość, albo wszystkie bzdury z tego wywiadu to wynik tłumaczenia, jeśli nie, to ten pan używa pojęć, których znaczenia nie rozumie, wypowiada się w kwestiach o których nie ma pojęcia, oraz obiecuje rzeczy niemożliwe…


It’s all set and ready!

It’s official now!

As Tristan quotes Chris:

(…) Firefox 1.5, the next major version of the open source browser, will be released on 29 November.

A next very good day for the browsing market is tuesday!

And yes, Firefox 2 is in development now – places anyone? As Chris said

Yes. Bookmarking is ready to be deprecated.

. Flock already has it! And there is much more to change, that we’re doing now, and Firefox will do in a few years timeframe, not sure about Opera, but I think that they HAVE to follow this earlier or later).


Bugzilla UI – help needed

Take a look here or here.

Try to find out what would you change to make this form cleaner. Imagine that you can’t take any field out, you can only reorganize the layout. The form must be in HTML. You can apply some JS but not too much (it must be accessible for people who doesn’t use JS)

I’m working on redesign of this page and I can use some help for sure. I’d love to get feedback from people working around Usability on a daily basis. If you know such person or you’re such person, please help me!


A little advice…

If you don’t see something in CVS log…. it might be a clue that it was not added to the patch.
Assuming that it’s the fault of CVS log, might result in tree bustage.

Gandalf v2.2

22 years and 12 hours ago, for the first time I had a chance to say something to the world.
I don’t remember that scene, but according to people who were there in that moment, I was really disappointed.
From that moment I keep smiling (first, I tried to yawl, but some guy in white suit slapped me for that). I love people, I’m an optimist and pacifist (all my aggression is gone after each MMA training).

I don’t like birthdays. I don’t appreciate the idea of getting older, and if anyone would ask me, I’ll suggest to remove this feature or at least add UI for switching it on and off again.
This reminds my my old concern…. On what license the life is? I can modify it pretty easily, biologists are reading my source code, but it’s impossible to make a copy (no, cloning is not the same) of me…

Anyway, I’m 2.2 now, I’m not stable at all, you can get no warranty, I’m, as always, under major code review, but my API is mostly stable.
Feature change-log since 2.1 includes added cute and beloved girlfriend, passion moved to the job component which should fix a lot of bugs about time looses, upgrades in Kyokushin-kai degree (7th kyu now), plenty books read, web-log, migration from Slack to Gentoo.
I’m also really proud of the work I did for Firefox 1.5. For the first time I was involved not only in marketing, finding bugs and helping people, but also in code development.
For this year I will put all my experience, knowledge and passion into Flock to make it the very best browser in the world. I’m so happy to be inside the process of shaping up this browser. When Mozilla Suite was created, I was a spectator, when Firefox was developed, I was in community, doing job around, now I’m inside of the process, and I feel so lucky because I got this opportunity.
I don’t know what the next year will bring, but as my sensei said, I’ll just try to be a bit better than I was yesterday. Cross your fingers please 🙂

L10n tool, part 2

I created a Wiki page for the tool. I’m looking for people to help me. If you have some experience with XUL/JS, or UI layout, and want to help, please, please, please, mail me, comment here, add yourself to that page. It will be much faster if I can get help from you.

On that page you can find some screenshots and first tarball, but you shouldn’t look in the code 😉
