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.

Erm. The argument that it doesn't have feature parity because MS adds extra non-standard stuff doesn't hold water. Feature parity for a browser is about what web functions it supports. We don't say that IE is far lagging mozilla in features because it doesn't support mozilla skins, or XUL, or Search plug-ins, etc. etc. I guess in not supporting P3P Mozilla could be considered to be lagging, though I'm not sure if that's actually a W3C recommendation yet. After all, Mozilla *does* support all the tags and attributes MSIE supports - the fact that it chooses to interpret ones that feature nowhere in the standards (largely by ignoring them) is just as valid an interpretation as IE rendering them in its own bizarre way.

Mozilla certainly can't hurt you in the way you imagine, at least not as much as Mozilla's failure would. The moment IE wipes out any competition, there goes your companies ability to create the best application on an even playing field.
