The Fix is In!

Sunday February 27th, 2000

For those of you on Win9x, grab today's (2-27-00) build. The performance fix is in (the disabling of timing code) that results in a substantial speedup. For example, in today's build, Tinderbox loads in 5 seconds on my line, vs. 14.56 seconds on the 2-25-00 nightly. Reload: 3.9 seconds, vs. 14.23 seconds. Other pages show the same speedup (and you can run two builds side-by-side to see for yourself).


#31 Very Impressed

I downloaded the build and must say that I am very impressed with the progress. I have been using Mozilla off on on, mostly experimently. Quite frankly, I found that Netscape was more stable and faster. However, I can now say fairly confidently that Mozilla is definitely faster than Netscape now and it is getting very stable. It is starting to look like I will be able to open many windows--as is my browsing habit--without Mozilla crashing. I am considering switching over to the browser full time.

I have a question, though. In a previous build, I imported my bookmarks and other settings from Netscape over into Mozilla. I have now lost those settings and want to redo the import. However, I cannot figure out how. I believe it was initially done during setup, but am not sure. Can someone tell me how to get to this feature so I can reimport my settings? Thanks.
