Mozilla Branches for 0.9.8

Wednesday January 23rd, 2002

mozilla.org today branched for Mozilla Milestone 0.9.8, as well as opened the tree for 0.9.9 checkins. Look for branch builds to start sometime later this week, as early as tomorrow. (While a certain site believes that without builds, you can't have a branch, that is not true.) Pre-0.9.9 trunk builds will start tomorrow, or possibly tonight. See our earlier story for what's new in 0.9.8.

Hmm. Since we are talking about stability, I think it is the right time to point out this: <http://hkigba-184-3.custo…ving.fi/killer/killer.php>

It is something I wrote over a year and half ago to test browser stability. I think there are still no browsers out there that could handle it without crashing. IE versions 4.x crashed also WinNT4 with this page. IE 5.x versions only crash the browser. Mozilla is not doing much better either.

I am not saying that it browser is bad, if it can't handle this kind of abuse but it is still interesting to see how they crash. Maybe one day we will have some mechanism in Mozilla to prevent this kind of sites crashing browsers.
