Mozilla 0.9.8 Released

Monday February 4th, 2002

Mozilla.org today released Milestone 0.9.8 of Mozilla. This release includes the new OS rendered classic theme on Mac OS X and Windows XP, a partial rewrite of the addressbook adding a quicksearch and additional printing enhancements, support for MNG animations, DOM Inspector on the Mac, dynamic theme switching, inline CSS support in composer, and so much more. You can check out the release notes for more information on what's changed and other issues.

Builds are available on mozilla.org's releases page, or on the FTP Server.

With 0.9.8 released, attention turns to 0.9.9, which many believe to be the last milestone prior to 1.0.

" That's definitely a good thing, but the polish issues are just as bad as two years ago. "

You've got to be kidding. Go download M13 <http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/m13/> and use it for a day then come back here and tell us with a straight face that M13 is just as polished as 0.9.8. You're either just trolling, you've never used M13 era builds, or you simply forgot what it was like to use them. Well I haven't. I still run those old builds semi-regularly (all the way back to M3 and mozclassic) and I think that if anyone else does the same they're going to laugh at your comment. I'm not excusing the existing polish issues in Mozilla builds (or the Netscape releases based on those Mozilla builds) but to suggest that M13 is as polished as today's product is simply absurd.
