Mozilla 0.9.6 Released

Tuesday November 20th, 2001 today made available for download binaries of the Mozilla 0.9.6 Milestone. The builds are available on the releases page, or you can get them directly from the ftp site.

New to this milestone are fixes for about 1,600 bugs including support for site icons in both the url bar and tabs (expect IE's favicons to show up in 0.9.7), displaying both Windows Bitmap (.bmp) and Windows Icon (.ico) files inline on all platforms, a new print preview implementation, Page Setup improvements on the Macintosh, Mail message 'labels' (Correction: This feature is not fully complete, only parts of the backed have landed.), and a new select and search context menu item, among others. If you are interested in more information on any of these new features, be sure to check out the release notes.

Also, last week released the source code on which Netscape 6.2 was based.

What's your system configuration? I'm told that on pre-NT-based versions of Windows IE crahsed prety often. I had no problems with it crashing more often than about once a month on Windows 2000, though. On Mac IE does crash more often, sometimes up to once a day, but that actually seems to be Open Transport problems rather than IE proper. (Open Transport was known within Apple as Broken Transport -- there are many known and unfixed crashers within Apple's networking layer, which is clearly the most unstable part of the classic OS.)
