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.

There actually is a cross-browser plugin standard, which allows a single plugin to operate on multiple platforms, and even ahs built-in security features to prevent plugins from behaving maliciously. It's called Java, and the plugins are called applets.

Sure, Java has issues, but Java applets in theory fill the same gap as plugins.
