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.

even on windows 2k, big brother loads a ton of external files onto that page if you view the page source: cbs has a slow page thats all.. news.cnet.com is not ever slow.. and latestly nightlies are better than the 0.9.4 milestone on this.

the first thing you can do to fix this slow down is in the advanced system preferences up the memory cache to 8192 or 16384.. it helps tremendously with page loading.. I think 8192 should be the memory default not 4096.. it takes more ram to load mozilla itself than that.. some pages have a lot of content: you can check this by download: saving a whole web page with IE's save feature, you open a few windows or downloading in the background and its going to slow mozilla down. So up your memory cache size will help!
