The Mozilla 1.0 Media Circus
Friday June 7th, 2002
The release of Mozilla 1.0 was reported by most tech news sites including BetaNews, CNET News.com, evolt.org, eWEEK, ExtremeTech, Geek.com Geek News, IDG.net, internetnews.com, Internet Week, LinuxMAX, Linux Today, MacSlash, MozillaNews, NeoWin.net, Slashdot, The Register, vnunet.com, WinInfo and ZDNet News. More mainstream news sites are also taking notice. BBC News has an article and smh.com.au (the online edition of The Sydney Morning Herald) reported on Mozilla a few days ago.
Taking a slightly different approach, PC Magazine marks the release with an interview with Mitchell Baker while ITBusiness.ca talks with Mike Shaver. Meanwhile, kuro5hin has an opinion piece about the release.
Mozilla 1.0 scored 7 out of 10 in CNET's review, which describes Mozilla as "the best free alternative to Microsoft IE." Meanwhile, eWEEK's analysis notes that "Mozilla makes it possible for any developer or company to customize the browser to be whatever they need it to be." NewsForge also discusses Mozilla's customizability. In addition, there's a Slashdot piece on the Mozilla 1.0 reviews.
On a related note, CNET has a video that recaps the browser wars and asks if Netscape 7.0 will revive the battle.
Thanks to everyone who sent us links to news and reviews.

> Is the profile stable? I'm using the same profile for a year and 2 months now without a single problem (that got to be something like Mozilla 0.8).
> are we done with the remove-all-files-from-any-previous-version routine after 1.0? I'd still remove the build from your system before upgrading, but I know people who don't do that.
