Mozilla 1.0 RC3 Released

Thursday May 23rd, 2002 today released what they hope to be the final release candidate prior to shipping 1.0. The majority of the changes between RC2 and RC3 are crash fixes in all areas of the client. We presume that if crash data over the weekend is positive, could release Mozilla 1.0 as early as next week. Keep watching MozillaZine for news on 1.0 over the weekend, and for its release.

You download RC3 from's releases page or from the FTP site, or check out the release notes.

> did Gecko significantly change?

Gecko changed not at all. The HTML parser changed to properly detect standards/quirks mode based on doctype (there was a bug in the detection before). The page is now treated as standards mode (since the doctype is bogus, hence unknown). It used to be treated as quirks. In standards mode, we parse HTML comments according to the standard and not according to what NS4/IE do.
