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.

I agree but it's very hard to do that kind of comparison. Especially because alot of people only wants the browser, not the mailprogram or the composer. For those who are intrested in what browsers who supports CSS1, CSS2, ECMA-262 etc best there are alot of sites about that. For example: <http://www.webreview.com/browsers/browsers.shtml> (old comapison though).

And I do also think it's hard to compare the rendering. I believe that's were both Mozilla:s strength and weekness lies. Because of the use of XUL and a layout engine (or whatever it is called). But that also makes the browser easy to add features etc. Just look at all the projects at <http://www.mozdev.org>!

If you look at <http://www.kmeleon.org> or <http://galeon.sourceforge.net> they are Mozilla based browser but can you really compare them to an ordinary Mozilla release ???

Well, I hope you get my points!
