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.

Netscape did have 2 TV ads for the launch of Netscape Online. It featured a coupla guys in Baseball caps who were introduced as being from a company that knew the Internet. Quite good from an advocacy point of view - but I guess not as effective as the ad you dismiss.
Going right back to my original point, Mozilla/Netscape 6 as a brand name means nothing to joe public. That needs to change. Whether you us a girl in a weird dress or you go for something less "patronising", you still need to build a brand. Otherwise - back to original point - Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes the de facto standard.
