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.

Yep, I agree 100%.

I assume Netscape didn't want to clobber the existsing profile directories on Macs and UNIX machines, but sharing the same profile directories as the development version of their browser has caused endless problems for people.

Anyone know why they did it?
