Mozbot 2.4 Released

Tuesday April 2nd, 2002

Ian Hickson writes: "Mozbot 2.4 is out! Things to look for since the last release: The KookBot module ("Think about the tyranny, malignant and unjust, and how it compares with truthful rational approach."), an XML Logging Module (see the sample output), a Conversion module (for converting hex to decimal, Fahrenheit to Centigrade, and so on), and a Magic Eight Ball module.

There are also several other minor fixes that should make module development easier, and some new features in existing modules, like Tinderbox notifications using notices and the Greeting module being friendlier. Download the source tarball or read the instructions for updating mozbot using CVS and have fun!"

But it will be more accepted than Opera, it will render webpages better than Opera or Netscape 4, and it will handle downloads better than Internet Explorer or Netscape 4. No one has proposed that Mozilla is the best at *everything*.

I'm of the opinion that Moz page rendering is better than any other option, and of course the categories Tanyel chose are quite arbitrary. There are any number of other categories one could define where Mozilla excels most of its competitors. I also think that acceptance of Mozilla and other gecko-based technologies will shortly gain more acceptance at least than Netscape 4.x.
