Mozilla 0.9.3 Released!

Thursday August 2nd, 2001

mozilla.org today released Mozilla milestone 0.9.3, continuing to work towards a 1.0 release. Preliminary data is showing that 0.9.3 is up to 35% more stable than 0.9.2, thanks to increased focus on stability bugs this milestone. Along with that, the newest incarnation of the Modern has had some additional work since 0.9.2.

Builds are available on mozilla.org's download page (or go right to the FTP directory), along with release notes.

Well, it seems good so far, no crashes or anything, and pages do render with amazing speed. (faster than IE on my computer even with the tiny inital delay --1ghz pIII 256 meg ram -- in fact it is even faster rendering a reaload side by side with IE when I start IE's reload first -- this is IE 6 preview, btw)

My first annoying thing is that it started with the classic interface, which to me is, well, ugly. ;) Not that it's a big thing... it's easy enough to switch...

however, the one thing that is bad enough to make me keep using IE is that the scroll-zone feature of my touchpad doesn't work in mozilla. On 'tall' web pages, it is extremely annoying to have to go back and use the scrollbar constantly. I'm not sure if the problem is in the touchpad software or mozilla, but either way, it is 'not cool!' (actually, it may be because the way the scrolling is accomplished is by temporarily moving the cursor to the scrollbar and moving it up or down based on your movements, so perhaps it doesn't work with the 'non-native' scrollbars in mozilla)

Anyway, though, it is very stable and can render sites that cause IE to stop functioning (<http://www.skiutah.com>).

At any rate, I really think mozilla at this point could be my primary browser on my desktop, but not quite yet on my laptop.

I suppose that's it... keep up the good work!
