CNET Review of Mozilla 1.0 Release Candidate 2

Monday May 20th, 2002

Ezh pointed us towards a review of RC2 over at CNET. We've been sitting on this for a few days in the hope of getting some more reviews to tell you about but no more seem to have come in. Tell us if you find any.

CNET's latest review, like the RC1 piece, is generally positive. Reviewer Rex Baldazo likes the fact that Java is easier to set up and approves of the new option to disable cookies in Mail & Newsgroups. However, he still hasn't read the bit in the Release Notes that says not to use the same profile with Netscape and Mozilla.

#10 Follow Beonex's example

Beonex uses its own profile directory (/applications data/beonex). Netscape should do the same and NOT use the "/mozilla" profile directory.

Mozilla should actually make it a policy to discourage this.

Of course, if any mozilla-based browser finds another mozilla-based browser's profile, it should offer to import (not use) the other profile.

I consider this to be a definete source of potential and serious problems and misunderstanding among users, and therefore a serious BUG.
