sorry for the OT stuff here... this is just re: personas.
 Not really sure if that's the intended audience – but to me it
so, as "power users" would probably rather alter behaviour by
extensions than doing fancy things with their toolbar background. I
realise, I could be totally wrong here, though.
I also think that power users won't give a damn about that persona
thingy and that the others won't even know it exists and if they do,
won't use it either.
Since the idea has been introduced, I stood silent because, well, this
is a thing of these days and I first fell rather ol'timer.
Still, my questions are these: do we *need* that functionality? What
does it brings WRT software use? Wouldn't the devs be better employed
fixing bugs rather than developing one more (useless?) functionality
which would in turn bring more bugs? *Who* would use the personas apart
BTW, I don't know anyone around me using Firefox and personas.
I don't want to rain on the party but my POV is that TDF shouldn't go
that route at this moment because the usage/cost ratio seems very low to
Strange, where I teach, and where personas are available, my 240 kids
in French classes ALL tailor their versions of FF and Chrome to what
they want, they also exchange between each other information about the
looks and feel of their software including their desktop looks and
I agree with you that with professional people personas may take a
back seat to functionality, but to the other larger group who use our
software and the younger set, functionality includes the look and feel
of their software as if defines them ... no matter how shallow a
function you may think it is.
A Lada may get us from point A to B ... but most people would prefer
to get a hot looking car than a square box with 4 wheels to cart them
Software functionality does include the look and feel otherwise we
would not be adding any color to our brand and just go for black and
white and save on toner cartridge cost ... and hey ... let's all just
get B/W monitors.
I don't know, but I also don't want to rain on your party either, by
my POV is that the TDF should go this route as it adds to the
popularity as well as gives us a larger usage base for our community
This is a good functionality to add to the product.
