Mozilla 0.9.8 Released

Monday February 4th, 2002 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.

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

The personal toolbar has pretty much replaced the bookmarks for me. I have everything organized in folders - it's great. However, when I start dragging the site URL into one of the folders, Moz pops up the tooltip for the address bar: "Enter search term, keyword or web address". It should never do it when I am dragging.

BTW, I used to complain bitterly about speed - that's because at work I am on P3/600 and the speed difference between IE and Moz is still significant there (i don't care what anyone says, it is true for me). But at home I got a brand spanking new Dell p4/1.7Ghz and the CPU power simply erases any speed differences. At home it is now my preferred browser.

Last gripe: would someone please port the Toy Factory theme to Moz, for god's sake - the rest of them suck horribly.
