Alternate Mozilla 0.9.9 Download Locations

Interest in 0.9.9 has been so great that we overwhelmed the 100 Mbit full duplex link from ftp.mozilla.org with heavy traffic." Because of this, mozilla.org and Netscape have set up a new set of servers (http, ftp) to handle the load. Also, you can check the mirrors list for servers closer to you.


#6 0.9.9 is getting a lot of good publicity

and people are having faith that 1.0 will be a substantial fraction of what it's cracked up to be.

I wonder what Netscape will do for servers when 1.0 is released ... What was the server load like when 6.1 and 6.2 were released?

How about something like what jwz describes <http://www.jwz.org/gruntle/nscpdorm.html> was done when Netscape 0.9 beta was released. Perhaps not cannon shots: perhaps the sound of a handclap for each successful download. Applause!
