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.

You might like to know that the AOL "Connie" ads won an award recently...for being the most irritating TV ad campaign shown in the UK in the last year.

Apparently, Connie is seen as patronising and irritating in equal measures by the people surveyed.

I'd be surprised if we ever saw Netscape TV ads in the UK (they launched their ISP "Netscape Online" in the UK first with no obvious ad campaign), although we have had Yahoo!, Excite and Lycos TV ads here in the UK (none of which have been any good, I hasten to add).
