Mozilla 1.0 RC1 Released
Thursday April 18th, 2002
mozilla.org today released the first 1.0 Candidate, in preparation for a final 1.0 build. They'll be using RC1 to evaluate where the 1.0 branch stands as far as crash bugs, and other things that email@example.com are tracking. RC1's changes since 0.9.9 include the abilty to view the source of a cgi (the most duped bug), reorganized context and main menus, LDAP over SSL, return recipts, new animated mail alerts on Windows, Download Manager, final xul syntax changes, and numerious other bug fixes.
You can download RC1 from mozilla.org's Releases Page or read the Release Notes. We highly encourage you to download the talkback enabled builds, so crashes can be found and logged prior to 1.0. (These pages haven't reached mozilla.org yet, you can grab builds from the FTP site.)
Once people start using RC1 and firstname.lastname@example.org get a handle on how the reception of it goes, they will be deciding whether or not to release another candidate or 1.0 itself. We'll keep you updated on this process, and let you know what is decided.

Well, it feels faster to me... however, there are some serious usability regressions.
1. Preferences panel is worthless. clicking on the left side of the panel does nothing. 2. Pressing the "Go" button is REQUIRED to view an URL typed into the URL bar. I've tried everything I could think of to get the Enter key to work, but so far no luck.
I'm about to go back to .9.9. I too am using mozilla as my daily browser, and I at least have to have #2 (and it kind of makes sense to have #1, don't you think? ;)
I'm on Windows 2000
