Welcome to MozillaZine's screenshot gallery! We will be posting screenshots of all the new and improved functions of Mozilla here, so that even if you can't run Mozilla, you can see it in action.

March 31, 1998 Mozilla is released to the world.  People outside of Netscape get to see the source code of Communicator for the first time.  Responce is huge, with thousands of downloads in the first day alone...
May, 1998 While the interface for Communicator 5 is largely unchanged from the 4.x version, a new enhancement shows up, called Aurora.  Aurora was a place to manage your data.  It let you see RDF sitemaps of popular sites like Wired and CNET, manage files on your local drives, and manage your bookmarks and history...
August 1998 The sitemaps and sidebar disappear, and new dropdown menus appear, that can be broken away, and docked on sides of the browser.  MozillaZine and MozBin slowly start coming together...
October 1998 A familiar site to Winamp users, Mozilla become skinnable via prefs...
November 1998 Mozilla.org announces that the current Mozilla codebase would be mothballed, and the new layout engine, Raptor, would now be used to build the first version of Mozilla...
November 1998 Development on all platforms ramps up, but the most progress can be seen on Linux, as it goes from not laying out anything to proper layout of complex CSS and tables in one week...
November 1998 More progress on Linux begins to bring it up to par with other platforms...
December 1998 Macintosh begins to quickly catch up as well, as more developers shift from 4.5x development to Mozilla...
January 1999 More progress is seen with the layout engine, while the UI continues to shift between native and cross platform views...
March 1999 Mozilla becomes the first browser to layout the Box Acid Test correctly...
March 1999 Mozilla on BeOS is first seen...
April 1999 For the first time since MozillaClassic, mail is back.  Along with it, the first parts of the new Cross Platform Front End are in place, and they are made out of an XML derivative, XUL.....
Surprise, surprise, the sidebar formerly know as Aurora returns, also made out of XUL, and along with bookmarks and related links, it also supports MyNetscape panels, as well as a variety of other HTML panels...
With XUL being so easy to write and modify, the skins are back.  Yet this time, anything you can see, you can edit...
September 1999 Yet another new feature of the layout engine is the ability to support multiple languages with ease, including Korean, as shown...
October 1999 The first look at the new Composer is reassuring, no more mangling of html...
January 2000 Mozilla users get a first look at the skin that Netscape will use for their browser.  Also note that the Box Acid test still lays out perfectly...
January 2000 Along with the new Netscape skin, Netscape rolls out a new design of its Netcenter portal, matching the skin's design.
February 2000 Mail begins to be usable, and many developers and end users begin using Mozilla as their primary browser and mail/news client...
February 2000 After much complaining from people about the look of the Netscape skin, and a long debate in the User Interface newsgroups, a group of people release a new chrome package for Mozilla.
March 31, 2000 After two years of hard work, the release date is near.  With only days till Netscape releases it's first beta of it's Mozilla derivative you can't help but feel excited for the project's future.....
