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'.

You can find Macintosh, Linux, and Windows builds on mozilla.org's releases page, as well as updated release notes.

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.

I personally think that the loading speed isn't the worst performance problem. After all, you do it once at login, you move Moz to a virtual desktop and you switch to it when you need Internet access. So it's not really important...

For what *really* matters is the huge amount of memory Mozilla uses: 35M is a lot too much for a browser. Netscape 4.7 took only 12M. I don't see any reason why Moz should use 3x times more memory than Netscape.
