  1. Mariner

    Mariner was a canceled project to add performance and stability enhancements to the layout engine used in the Netscape Communicator web browser. Mariner became open source in March 1998 when Netscape released its client code and started the Mozilla project. Mariner added support for page reflow, a feature lacking in previous Netscape releases, making the layout of text and tables much faster. In addition, development work was done on a Document Object Model and stability was improved. Enhancements to HTML and CSS were also made but these were not technically part of the Mariner project. The original intention was to ship Mariner in Netscape Communicator 5.0, with subsequent releases using the newer NGLayout engine. However, in October 1998, Netscape decided to abandon the old layout engine in favour of NGLayout and work on Mariner ceased. Netscape Communicator 5.0 and Mariner never shipped. The next major Netscape revision was built around Gecko.

Examples of mariner in a Sentence

  1. English Proverb:

    A smooth sea never made a skilled mariner.

  2. Police Inspector Danny Mulligan:

    Approximately two kilometers off the mariner here behind me in Mindarie, between the one mile and three mile reefs, a man and woman were diving when the woman was taken by, or appears to have been taken, by a shark.

  3. Author Unknown:

    A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, neither do uninterrupted prosperity and success qualify for usefulness and happiness. The storms of adversity, like those of the ocean, rouse the faculties, and excite the invention, prudence, skill and fortitude or the voyager. The martyrs of ancient times, in bracing their minds to outward calamities, acquired a loftiness of purpose and a moral heroism worth a lifetime of softness and security.
