Mozilla 1.0 Release Candidate 2 Released

Friday May 10th, 2002 today released the second release candidate of Mozilla 1.0, in preparation for the final release of 1.0, hopefully by the end of this month. You can grab it by going to the releases page or by going to the ftp site. You can also check out the release notes and a full list of what's new.

A brief list of what's new between RC1 and RC2 includes HTTP 1.1 pipelining support, the removal of the link toolbar (for performance reasons, still on in the trunk), and this will be the first milestone release with a fix for the security hole announced last week. Along with this, the main focus has been on stability, and a number of crash and top crash fixes have gone in.

Along with the release of RC2, has updated the release roadmap with some rough estimates of what will be happening on the trunk with 1.1, and announcing today's release of RC2.

#57 not unacceptably slow for me

On the above site, Mozilla (trunk or RC2) scrolls noticeable slower than IE6 on my 400MHz-Win2K machine. But it is still acceptable. You may see quite different results because of specific graphic os/video hardware/driver configurations. It is not only the processor that affects scrolling speed.
