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.

#17 Doesn't mean browser bugs

When he says 'debugging problems' he doesn't mean actual browser bugs, he means things like 'how can I import my mail', 'why does this page look wrong', 'why doesn't this browser work on my 386sx 4 MB windows 3.1', etc.

He's talking about technical support (of which there is none), not browser bug reporting (of which there is plenty).

The last article used the same phrase.

I don't have any quarrel with it, although I'm unsure exactly how much technical support the other companies actually provide for their browsers (Microsoft, Opera... or for that matter Netscape). I doubt any of those companies really offer free telephone support for their browsers.
