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.

I use Photoshop to crop a picture until it is a square. Then I resize the picture to 16x16 and reduce the color depth to 16 colors. Then I save the graphic as a GIF image. Then I load the file with IrfanView and save it as an Icon file. I think the whole thing can be done with IrfanView but making the picture a square would be difficult.

After the icon is produced, I upload it and put

<link href="Sexy_Tanyel_Naked.ico" rel="shortcut icon">

between <head> and </head> tags. If the webpage is not in the same folder as the icon then the path has to be included with the filename. The filename should not be the same as mine unless you have the same name and office activities.
