Nerdzilla Browser Project
August 8, 1998
A group of hackers plans to create a 'Nerdzilla' browser
using the Mozilla source code. "We plan to have an alpha
release next month," a Nerdzilla programmer said.
"Nerdzilla is a browser for nerds. If you read Slashdot or
Humorix on a regular basis, Nerdzilla is for you."
Features planned for Nerdzilla include:
Slashdot Bar(tm): Nerdzilla will have a Slashdot Bar, which
will have one-click access to the latest headlines, in
addition to a Slashdot and Everything search box. Users
can customize this to include headlines and searches from
other sites, including Freshmeat and Humorix.
FUDMeter(tm): Nerdzilla will use sophisticated AI
technology to detect FUD, spin, and hype. If detected, the
Nerdzilla throbber will change to an animation of Bill
Gates being hit by a cream pie (this can be customized).
ThrobberMatic(tm): The Nerdzilla throbber will be
customizable so it reflects the current situation. For
instance, if you load a microsoft.com page, the throbber
will change to the Bill-Gates-of-Borg picture. If you load
a KDE or GNOME page, the throbber will change to a
animation of two people throwing flames at eachother. If a
page contains an ActiveX applet, the throbber changes to an
animation of a nuclear mushroom cloud, along with the
bars, and other annoying advertising vehicles can be
turned off. This has been the most requested and
anticipated feature of Nerdzilla.
WhoNeedsYahoo?(tm): Nerdzilla will automatically add and
categorize all links referenced on Slashdot, Freshmeat, and
other sites to the bookmarks file.
