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.

Agreed. 'Anybody who used netscape 6 is potentially screwed unless they do something complicated', as a releasenote that nobody will read, isn't IMO really very good for a 1.0 release.

At *worst*, surely it must be possible to detect that there's an existing profile and warn that you need to do something. I mean, even if it can't be fixed, at least it could tell you that you really do need to go read the releasenote.

Oh well, I hope some workaround is done, though looking at the linked bug (btw the way releasenotes are linked to bugs *is* good), it doesn't seem too likely. At least - I presume - this kind of thing will be sorted out in one way or other for the netscape 7 release.
