Mozilla 0.9.6 Released

Tuesday November 20th, 2001

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

When on Windows, I'm using Win98SE, I know it's not the most stable system but it works for me (need just ICQ, Mozilla, Winamp, TV, a terminal program for programming and some games). But the point is, that it is even the improved version of a released OS and Version 5 of a released browser so it seems like Microsoft maybe much worse in releasing products of dubious quality...

And as you say there are many known and unfixed crashers in this released Apple OS (or this part of it).

If professional products are like this and Mozilla is not professional than I certainly like this unprofessionality and especially if it gets better and better like the last time.
