Mozilla 0.9.2 Released
Friday June 29th, 2001
mozilla.org 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'.
Following 0.9.2 are two releases, 0.9.2.1, 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.
#123 How do they get their stats ?

If they depend on the use of off-site cookies, then the figures will likely be too low for Mozilla. Most mozilla users are probably (at least for now) pretty web savvy users, and will set the browser to reject off-site cookies.
Some of their other figures look dubious as well. They show about 1.5 million Linux users, whereas according to counter.li.org the figure is closer to 17 or 18 million. Another thing I noticed was that the figure for Win 3.x actually went UP from June 2000 to June 2001. I suppose this is possible if people with really old machines just went out and bought modems, but it still seems rather odd to me.
