Mozilla 0.9.1 Released

Thursday June 7th, 2001 released milestone 0.9.1 today, which continues to move Mozilla towards the 1.0 release. New features include Bi-directional text support, LDAP Autocomplete in mail, new combined taskbar, an overhaul of the Modern skin with all new colors and buttons, and a slew of performance and stability fixes, with over 30 of the topcrash bugs fixed.

Builds can be found on's Releases Page for Linux, Windows, and Macintosh.

Milestone 0.9.2 will be a special stability milestone, which will only have two weeks of 'open' checkins before ramping down for another release. The drivers will control the checkins during the two weeks, so the tree will have some time to recover from the large landings over the last few months. This will also give vendors a good point to use for their releases.

Good reasons.. I also don't like MDI apps for some reason, so Opera feels a little odd to me. I'm not comfortable using it, tho I suppose I might learn to.. I like the way NS4 looks and works and even more so, I like the way Mozilla looks.. Unfortunately, I don't share your view on Mozilla being more robust than IE but I certainly hope it will get to that point. IE being insecure is a non-issue to me since all known bugs are patched right now.. There have been lots and lots of security bugs in Netscape browsers too (just think of all the Netscape 4.x versions!) so using a Netscape product doesn't make me feel any more secure.

As far as being able to change anything you want.. yeah.. sure.. That's a good reason too.

The problem is that many users (most) simply don't care. Many - if not the majority - don't even know what browser they are using! I think that's a good thing in the sense that an application should be very invisible & transparent. If it means that they are using an inferior product for no good reason, it's a bad thing of course.
