Preparing the new release

Anyone willing to translate Malzilla to other languages?

I'm preparing the next release, and I would like to include a couple of translations with the release.

There is some 200 strings to translate. Unicode is supported, so one can even translate to Chinese or Arabic.
Translation tool is also available.

I'm still polishing the interface, so the string list is still not complete, but if anyone applies for translating, I would prepare the list in ~10 days.

Also, if you like to test the current development snapshot and to participate into interface/options design decisions - please send me a email (s p a s i c @ g m a i l . c o m)

A interesting one (underscores are here just for the sake of text-formating).
_function iR(Sf)
___return Sf
__var mR='ee2el2eM2eD2eX2eJ2eL2en2ek2eS2eT2em2e ... ';
__var fS=mR.substr(2,1),
__oC=Array(19630^19513,27309^27253,RQ('217'),RQ('194') ... ));
__var ab, Ar;
__var To,
__LY='eeeleMeDeXeJeLenekeSeTemeReMeLeXeAeReWeqebeDeteOe ... ';
__var cG=String();
__function RQ(ev)
___return parseInt(ev)
__for (ab=0;ab__{
___var VOh=mR.length;
____if(mR[Ar]==To) break;
var lIz=1
If I run it in Malzilla, Malzilla will say that the script compiled, but there is no output at all.
So, only conclusion would be that the script throws an error, but the error get caught because try..catch block.

So, where is the error?
Lets change the catch statement a little bit:

_catch(xlW){document.write( + ': '+ xlW.message)}

Running the script again will produce now something useful for us:

ReferenceError: RQ is not defined

Now take a look again at the script - the function RQ is there, so whats wrong?
It is in wrong place, at least for SpiderMonkey.
Cut the RQ function and move it to the top of the script, run the script again and voila - the script will run and produce the output.

Somewhere to start

A 'Hi' from the developer of Malzilla
I'll keep you here informed about the development, and about the interesting cases of Malzilla's usage.
