Weekly Status Report, W33/2011

Here's a short summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 33/2011 (August 15 - 21, 2011):

I continue to be humbled by what awesome people work at Mozilla. Not just that we hired a lot of really great people (and we have a ton of additional career offerings but also about the quality of work that interns at Mozilla are doing. I always felt that it was great that we were having interns work on real-world projects that "normal" employees would work on as well, but I was completely blown away when I saw and heard some intern "show & tell" presentations about them implementing new language features for Rust, like object self-reference and inheritance. I mean, how cool is that for an internship work? They are creating stuff where I can hardly grasp their usage, let alone how an implementation could be done at all. I know, I have always seen people implementing programming languages as über-gurus, but people like that young man and young woman who presented doing that as a summer internship for Mozilla? I don't have a word for that - though, maybe, as it makes me actually stare in awe and wonder, there might be one matching the definition: purely "awesome".

Seamonkey 2.3 impressions
Just wanted to mention a few of my impressions of version 2.3:

1) More pages on the web now render properly in wide screen format (rather than end up left-justified). Any way to make all web pages render properly in Seamonkey (centered) rather than being left-justified? Or is this a CSS issue with individual websites?

2) The new "data manager" feature does not allow us delete cookies en masse. Instead, we have to delete them one-by-one. Please re-instate the "delete all cookies" feature!

3) It's also now not possible to see all of one's passwords at the same time (we have to look at them site-by-site). It was better before, quite frankly.

Appreciate everyone's continuing hard work on Seamonkey.

Thanks for considering my views!

Also, my blog is not a SeaMonkey support forum, so I will only selectively reply to any messages regarding SeaMonkey here.

Thank you
Appreciate the tip on clearing cookies - hopefully the page-rendering issues will be resolved in a future version?

Thanks again!

SeaMonkey uses the exact same renderer as Firefox, so if websites look wrong, it's either a bug in both or in the website - experience shows that it's usually the latter.
