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.

Well, I know what you mean. But you actually *can* make web pages that look exciting in Mozilla and just way dull in IE: I'm using standards compliant CSS on one of my pages and guess what? the page is broken on IE 5+. I'm using @import so the 4.x browsers don't show the CSS. But now, because it is so broken in IE and I really don't want to make special hacks for IE, I will be writing a server-side browser recognition and also disable the stylesheets for IE 5. I hope IE 6 behaves better on this topic, otherwise I will have to do the same for it. So now if you see a web page without colors, without layout in one browser (IE) and with cool layout in another (Moz/MS6), do you see any difference?

By the way, I don't know what is so exciting about changing the colors of the scrollbars... Maybe you will find it exciting if Microsoft JScript can make your CD-Rom tray to open. Cool!
