Independent Status Reports (19 December, 2005)
By Brian King

It's been a while (August) since the last set of status reports, but this does not mean that we've been inactive here at mozdev.org. In fact, quite the opposite! As can be seen from this set of reports, projects owners have been busy. New projects are coming online all the time, and many existing ones have gone through the process of updating for Firefox 1.5. Behind the scenes, mozdev's infrastructure has been audited and many enhancements have been made. A new server will be in place for the new year, at a new hosting facility. More on that later. So all of us at mozdev wish you a great holiday season, and here's to another wonderful year for Mozilla in 2006.

Note: If anyone has an update that they would like included in the next report, go here, or have any feedback on the reports in general, feel free to contact us.

Previous Reports

TrustBar - 0.4

(Both a web spoofing protector and a site credentials supplier)

For: Mozilla, Firefox

Platform: All

Major new release for TrustBar (now 0.4):
1. We addressed user concerns - and in particular, not waste of chrome `real estate`.
2. Added `Hey!` button for reporting fraud sites. `Hey!` is not just a reporting tool... when user accesses their sensitive sites (e.g. login), Hey! will sometimes (randomly) present the correct site - but with location bar and other indicators presented as if you received a spoofed page instead.
Early feedback is that people find Hey! pretty cool. We _need_ people to use Hey! - and as soon as possible - since we use the detections as input to our research on secure usability.
