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.

Just downloaded Moz 0.9.6 and I notice that it is very sluggish when entering text in "compose" in hotmail. In fact same prob seems to be occuring on this form. There seems to be almost a second delay from when a char is typed on the keyboard to when it is displayed on the keyboard. Can easily type a sentence or two ahead at avg speed (40 or 50wpm).

Win98SE, 350MHz, 384MB, lots of GB of diskspace avail. Downloaded and installed JRE 1.3.1_01 from Sun. First time downloading Moz on this machine (which has NS 4.76+IE 5.01).
