Mozilla 0.8.1 Released!

Monday March 26th, 2001 today shipped Mozilla 0.8.1. Builds are available on the ftp server and release notes are also available.

Mozilla 0.8.1 continues on the road to 1.0, and is one of the last milestones prior to it. The next planned milestone will be 0.9, and will branch on or around April 20. Following that will either be a 0.9.1 release or a 1.0 branch on the 20th of May. More info on the milestone plan is available on the roadmap page.

Mozilla 0.8.1's new features include an updated Chatzilla, a much improved Javascript console, improved theme switching and support for theme uninstalling, new history viewer ala mozClassic, improved mail filtering, and numerous other bug fixes. 0.8.1 does not include the new Outliner Mail Window, the new disk cache, or imglib2.

Kicks IE5.5 tail in your dreams! I mean PLEASE!!! Enthusiasm is good but what you really need is some realism! No matter how much I'd like for Mozilla to be the #1 browser, it most certainly isn't at the moment. Currently, I would rate even Netscape 4 above Mozilla and most definitely, IE4, IE5, IE5.5 and soon IE6 *AND* the latest Opera versions. I don't know what your system is like but IE crahses about once a month or something on my machines, both at work and at home on a laptop and a desktop (Win NT4 at work, Windows 2000 on the laptop and Win 98 on the desktop). Mozilla crashes about 10 times per hour on all of those. And yes, I have the latest builds and milestones and yada yada. Until Mozilla stays up for more than a day at a time and until SSL becomes usable for anything other than testing and until all the UI glitches are worked out and until key features like bookmarks actually WORK, I'll be using IE5.5 thank you very much. Time to wake up and smell reality!
