Firefox 3 (Gran Paradiso) Alpha 1 Preview

Among its many problems:

Gecko, not “Gekko”, is Firefox’s rendering engine, not a “search engine”. Mozilla has not decided to compete with Google quite yet.

I program using the DOM (Document Object Model) all the time, but I have no idea what the “Dominant Object Model (DOM)” is. It sounds dirty.

Firefox 3 will not allow Mac users to “create Cocoa Widgets for their desktops”. I don’t even know where to begin with this possible Dashboard-widget reference, but they’re trying to tell us that Firefox 3 will render its HTML form-input widgets using native OS X interface widgets instead of the manually-created buttons they use now that look like they’re from Windows 95.

The really sad part is that Wikipedia linked here (footnote 90).
