Agenda & Minutes

Roadmap launchpad:

MozCamp Singapore
  • Gestures for oft-used browser functions (back, forward, new tab, close tab)
  • Offline browser distribution
  • modifying the Android keyboard to include oft-used punctuations and letters (eg '.com')
  • voice search
  • custom about:home based on locale for oft-used websites
  • sharing customisation settings, sounds
  • global 'reader mode' setting
Quick Status Update on Key Features for Fx 17, Fx 18 and 19
  • Fx 17
    • Any hot items from launch?
      • Why two devices weren't blocked (under investigation)
      • Pings for metrics
  • Fx 18
    • Product announcements -> 'yellow status'
    • Timing for new web content font? [awaiting license agreement and approval for cost; can be comfortable taking this up to the 2nd beta in 18 as drop-dead date] -> fonts ready to go, awaiting approval on costs and finalise agreement and will proceed only with Android scope. Beta 3 could possibly be our drop-dead (build next week), but up for discussion. Let's put it in nightly as a start.
    • Search suggestions opt-in -> a go
    • Phishing & malware protection -> some outstanding UI tweaks but shouldn't affect the operation of the feature
  • Fx 19
    • Per-Tab private browsing moved to Fx 20
    • Supporting all Android locales moved to Fx 20
    • Reflow on Zoom moved to Fx 20
    • Metrics & Benchmarking wins -> TBD
    • Light-weight themes -> any blockers? looking for performance and profiling tracking; hoping to get something on AMO for a friendly website to install themes
    • ARMv6 expanded support: 600MHz, 512MB, HVGA
      • Tile-by-tile drawing, low-res tiles, mitigating locking seeing on thread (performance optimisation)
    • Fx integration into Google search widget
