mozilla.org Releases 0.9.2.1

Tuesday August 14th, 2001

mozilla.org today released the source code for 0.9.2.1, which is the code that matches Netscape 6.1. This comes from the 0.9.2 branch, and is being made available both as part of the MPL license requirement, and as a way for third parties to easily use it to write compatible plugins and addon features to Netscape 6.1, as well as Mozilla.

Honestly, I think this "rendering speed" issue doesn't interest us dial-up users (56K/64K/128K). Speed limitations due to modem technology and ISP's limited backbone bandwidth is much more of a loading performance problem here in Europe.

But there is at least one glazing exception : javascript/dom performance is abysmally slow and this makes browser nearly unusable, at least for intranet applications. There is already a Bugzilla bug about it and I hope they'll soon address the problem (although curent target milestone for this bug is 1.0)
