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.

If you test Linux or Mac OS X against the standard of "Windows-killer," they fail miserably. If you test Dr. Pepper or Orange Crush against the standard of "Coca-Cola-killer," they fail miserably. Yet Linux and OS X, Dr. Pepper and Orange Crush are all successful products.

I don't understand this obsession with "market-share" and "IE compatibility." The marketplace is huge!

And as for that 1% augment... If the company you work for can afford to ignore 1% of its market, then your company is too small to be of any significance. If the multi-national I work for ignored 1% of its market, then a whole hell-of-a-lot of us would be out of a job!

1% of next to nothing = next to nothing! 1% of a hell-of-a-lot = a hell-of-a-lot!
