Mozilla 0.9.2 Released

Friday June 29th, 2001 released milestone 0.9.2 today, which many at mozillaZine believe to be the best candidate for a 1.0 release yet, from an end user point of view. New items since 0.9.1 include 25 more top crash bugs fixed (as measured by Talkback) along with a new context sensitive help system, a new view source window, and a new preloader for windows called 'Turbo'.

You can find Macintosh, Linux, and Windows builds on's releases page, as well as updated release notes.

Following 0.9.2 are two releases,, which will be taken from Netscape's branch after they complete their release from it, and 0.9.3 which will be taken from a branch off the trunk, and will not be under the same drivers checkin control, as previously reported.

#121 WebReference stats are unreliable

And today, they're showing Netscape, MSIE, and Opera with 0.00% each. It tends to do weird things. It'll sit reliably at 11%-13% for a few months, then drop to 2% for a few days, then go back to normal.

Of course, what do you expect from WebReference? Read a few JavaScript articles and you'll get some idea of just how little technical knowledge those guys actually have.

As long as Mozilla development continues to focus on the sexy parts (optimization, for example) and less on delivering a polished product with stable APIs, we're not going to see high rates of user adoption or companies other than Netscape basing products on it.
