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.

#27 Good impressions ...

I wonder how important it is to to make a good impression. Reviewers will probably browse through it. There is still a lot of outdated links and info there, e.g. the roadmap still doesnt indicate that RC2 was released May 10th, there are still links to the long non-existant mynetscape channels in "Newsbot" etc. Mozilla already has somewhat of an image that it was cooked up by a bunch of hackers and I think the site reinforces that impression. For somebody with CVS access, putting the release date into the roadmap will take a maximum a 10 seconds, and this doesnt seem to be possible in more than a week?
