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.

#25 Performance discrepancy

I'm certainly not one to stress general performance improvements -- I'm much more concerned with standards compliance and stability -- but the incredibly platform discrepancy in performance is astonishing.

A page such as <> loads ridiculously faster on Mac OS 9.1 (300 MHz G3, 192 MB RAM) than on my Linux/X11 box (600 MHz K7, 256 MB RAM). And it's not even worth mentioning Windows.

What is to be accounted for this great difference in performance?
