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.

I think SmileyBen's point was that with Mozilla -turbo can be disabled, but it is virtually impossible to disable the preloading that occurs with IE. Since the primary criticism of IE preloading is that it wastes resources for those who do not use IE, it would only be hypocrisy if Mozilla did the same thing, but since Mozilla makes preloading an OPTION then Mozilla is not being hypocritical by touting this feature for those who want it.
