Re: New Mozilla
- Do not understand me wrong.
ASV2 & ASV3 for windows developed Adobe mainly because of old Netscape
player. Then, in view to that Gecko will be the next Netscape with
some 11% shared browser market, thay started porting ASV3 to Gecko
interface. This attemps was wrong, because of not frozen Mozilla's
API. Many problems occured, as you mention.
But, now, when Adome continues with ASV3 for Linux and ASV6 for
Windows/maybe Linux/ this means something:
- they do not more trust AOL/Netscape who leaved Gecko development,
but believe in Linux market, where Firebird and Mozilla are the most
popular. Switching to old Netspace plugin API also supports other
Lin/Win browsers. Also on Windows Mozilla is becoming greater in its
share, and during 2004 is expected to rise more. Now, only with
Mozilla Foundation (not AOL) in its back is important each new release
of this browser. It should assure Adobe that investments to this way
(Linux market + part of Windows/Mac) have future and will be going on.
If foretellings of stopping Mozilla, when not support from Netscape,
will came true, it will surely (in negative way) was impact on any SVG
technology developing in SVG. That's why is also for SVG community
good news, that Mozilla not speed down/stop its releases.
