Mozilla 0.9.1 Released

Thursday June 7th, 2001

mozilla.org 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 mozilla.org'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 mozilla.org 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.

I'm using IE for Mac OS X at the moment. As far as surfing the net goes, it's fine, it does have its annoyances (locks up for long periods of time), and it's slow. But just as compliant as the Mac OS 9 version. Running Classic is not really a nice solution.

I also use Fizzilla, in fact I split my time about 50/50 between the two browsers. It's also slow (all web browsers under OS X are, for various reasons). Fizzilla isn't up to the standards of IE 5.1 yet. But it's getting there... I'd say it's got a better future, given the BSD back-end that they're working on integrating.

The only really big hurdle I see with Fizzilla is getting a Mac OS X-like chrome, with Aqua-fied scrollbars setc.
