Tree Closed for M13

Wednesday January 19th, 2000

The tree has closed for M13 stabilization, so we can expect to see an M13 build show up sometime within the next week or so. There has been a lot of work done over the past few weeks, and I think a lot of people will be happy with the progress they see in the final M13 binaries. Keep an eye out here for news and more of what to expect in M13.

I agree. Netscape would probably gain more users by saying Mozilla is IE compliant than talking about XML.

I think the most exciting concepts in Mozilla are the ones that have nothing to do with Web "standards". I have not noticed any of the difficulties of lacking XML or CSS support because the websites I view were designed to work with web browsers that get along fine without the various recomendations. I did notice things about the interface that were good, or seemed quite promising.

I did not switch to Internet Explorer because of its level of W3C "standards" support. I switched because it remembered passwords, I could resize the browser without waiting for the entire page and all of the graphics to load, and I did not have to stare at "starting java..." for several years before a webpage loaded. Mozilla has solved at least two of those problems. If they had not focused on the future "standards" then the browser would probably be ready by now.
