Mozilla Web Site Project

The new web site is a work in progress. In the future we would like to focus on the following areas to improve the visual style, accessibility and maintainability of the pages:

  • Focus development in the site style sheets on simplification, relying more on defaults and simple deviations from default settings rather than setting up complex schemes to adjust spacing between lines of text in paragraphs, headings, and so on. Avoid overriding the user's default font size. Avoid extra line height and zero top and bottom margins.
  • Develop a comprehensive and useful collection of reusable styles based on .class selectors rather than specific #id based selectors that allow all pages in the site to benefit from a uniform visual style.
  • Strive to find font settings that are readable on the majority of systems for a cross section of users with the default settings.
  • As a result of the above, reduce the complexity and file size of the style sheets to allow for less troublesome maintenance in the future.

The group currently guiding the future development of the site, known as website-drivers, is:

  • David Baron
  • Bart Decrem
  • Brendan Eich
  • Dawn Endico
  • fantasai
  • Ben Goodger
  • Chris Hofmann
