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.

It doesn't have feature parity. M$ extensions to the DOM may be proprietary but they are darn powerful. And there's nothing like Visual InterDev for Mozilla.

What do i want from it? What I used to want was a clean, well-factored, reliable browser on which I could implement various ideas about improving the browsing experience as a weekend project. Now that it's become obvious that Mozilla is a vast, lumbering beast that would require three coders and ten QA people to add the simplest significant feature (instead of just fixing other people's bugs), I no longer have that hope.

I guess right now all I want is for Mozilla not to hurt me too much if at some point we have to support it in our application. Think I'm SOL on that one, though -- we haven't been able to get our developers to stay off the IE proprietary features, since those save them a lot of time....
