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.

You are replying to this message

"Is there some way to insure certian important facts about Mozilla (such as not to use the same profile for both Mozilla and Netscape, information easily gained by reading the release notes) reaches the reviewers?"

Well, I just sent a message back using their feedback form, gently pointing out the release notes URL, and quoting the paragraph that says not to do that.

"We did the thing they said not to do and it broke. Goodness!" *ahem*

Even if they do consider it a major bug, it would be appropriate that the release notes did say "DON'T DO THIS CRAZY THING, YOU FOOL!"
