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.

#6 This should be solved

Having that note in the release notes is better than nothing, but the fact that Netscape and Mozilla use the same profile naming scheme but cannot share the profile is just an ugly bug if you ask me. Mozilla and Netscape should be smart enough to identify which version of a gecko based browser has created the profile and either reject it or convert it if it is incompatible.

Honestly - does anybody really expect a significant amount of users to read 17 pages of fine print?
