mozilla.org releases Mozilla Milestone 0.9.4

Friday September 14th, 2001

mozilla.org today released Mozilla Milestone 0.9.4. New to this release is the ability to disable the JavaScript window.open() method during page load and unload events. You can find more information on what's new at the release notes.

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

A recent post to the Mozilla builds newsgroup explains that Netscape will continue to check into the 0.9.4 branch. Work continues on the trunk toward Mozilla 0.9.5.

So what exactly do you want from this browser? As a web developer (and I thought you were a serious one too), I'm aware that Mozilla already is better that IE. Sure it's slower on many systems (but faster on some others), but it does the job of a web browser - rendering HTML - a damn sight better than IE. It boasts feature parity, and a good deal more with it. I'm not exactly sure what it is you feel it's missing. If it's really only that it's kinda buggy, then please, please go back to a closed source world, where you'd be none the wiser for a few months, by which time most of the bugs will be ironed out.

I'm not just cheerleading - I understood a few months ago the moans about Mozilla, but now I really don't. I for one am genuinely impressed with what mozilla.org has achieved - and the fact they did it in about half the time the world's richest software company could do it - that's gotta say something.

But I guess I don't count in your eyes, as evidenced by Sawmill titlebars at the top and Gnome panel at the bottom of my screen...
