Some Reasons to Try Out a Nightly Build

Sunday February 13th, 2000

If you haven't tried a nightly build in the past few days, we might have some reasons for you to do so.

Borofkin writes, "The latest nightly build has persistant proxy authentication, making it usable for those of us whose only Internet access is via an authenticating proxy server." I know a lot of people have been asking for this to be implemented.

Second, if you have shied away from using Mozilla's Mail/News because of the slow performance of the thread pane, you should really give it a try now. The threadpane now scrolls smoothly. There are still a few bugs, but the improvement is very noticable.

Mozilla has really shown some incredible jumps in performance and useability in the last month... since Jan 14th, I could no longer run Mozilla on my 350 desktop, only on my 450 laptop (have no clue why, mozilla.exe would give me an internal error) Since the 8th of Feb, I have been enjoying Mozilla on both! And can see a HUGE, and I mean HUGE change on my desktop since I last ran it in Jan. Mail in working flawlessly (ok, a bit of an overstatment, but you get the point) and the browser I now use for 99% of browsing (That's damn right I'm using it now).

What I would like to know is how the java and plugin support is going on these days, and when we can expect it?

I know flash and a few other things are possible, but is there anything written on adding plugin support (mainly java).

Another HUGE thing I have noticed is Mozillas work with javascript, My whole site is based around JS (I'm kinda a JS guru) and things are working incredibly well now!!
