From ConceivablyTech:
Mozilla does not discuss product problems behind closed doors and employees as well key contributors rarely sugarcoat their opinions. A blog post published by Community Lead Tyler Downer rocks Mozilla as he claims that Mozilla Triage QA process is broken and he believes that the current rapid release process drowns Firefox in a sea of bugs with no land in sight.

Downer recently left Mozilla as Community Lead (“for the time being”), which gives him considerable influence in the pre-sorting process of bugs (triage) that are reported by the Mozilla community. In a post that explains the reasons for his departure, he voices frustration with Mozilla that there is not attention that is paid to triaging bugs. According to Downer, there are currently 5934 (unconfirmed) bugs in the shipping version of Firefox. He noted that of those almost 6000 bugs, 2598 have not been touched over the past 150 days (since the launch of Firefox 4).


“In Spring 2010, we hit roughly 13,000 [unconfirmed] bugs in Firefox. 13,000!!! We currently have 5934,” Downer writes.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
