Don’t ask me how I came upon this, I was just casually link hopping, as we all do, and stumbled upon one of the semi-forgotten artifacts of Mozilla Heritage.
I’m sure some who haven’t stumbled upon this before will enjoy some of Ben Goodger’s work from days of old. Of particular note is “addins”, described as “details about proposed addins plan. Superseded by XPInstall and overlays.” Includes some hand drawn diagrams.
I remember way back when releases were milestones… and buggy as heck on Mac OS Classic. Good times.
This concludes the lesson in Mozilla History 101.
