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.

Well, all I can say is that I've been using mozilla as my primary browser and mail client since, oh, a year ago or so for the browser and since august for mail. The only problem I've had was a corrupted profile when I upgraded to XP from ME, but I doubt that has much to do with Mozilla. Recently, I've noticed that mail has become much faster... and actually works faster on IMAP than outlook (I haven't used outlook in a while, but I have what came with IE6, so it can't have changed that much.)
The only reason I use IE now is for kerberos authentication for my university's online records system, and to test my site layouts to make sure they don't explode or anything. ;)
Maybe my computer is just special, but Mozilla rarely crashes. One thing I don't really like is these textareas, though. They're better than they were a while ago, but still... weird stuff happens randomly, and there is a delay between when I type and when the text appears. Oh well. Go 0.9.8! :)
