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.

#9 Cookie Manager Window

He's also missed the third paragraph in the same section of the release notes as the profile bit <>

He complains that the Cookie Manager window has no scroll bar, and he has to use the keyboard's up/down arrows to scroll through, when all he has to do is grab the edge of the window and make it larger.

To those of us who've lived through far worse problems with Moz's chrome we know that the default size of some windows is wrong and have resized them months or years ago, but really this is one of those fairly inexcusable chrome polish things that the average Joe user (or reviewer) has no idea about. After all he expects scrollbars to appear when a window is too small, not disappear!
