Mozilla 1.1 News Reports

Tuesday August 27th, 2002

Though not as major as 1.0, a few tech sites noted the launch of Mozilla 1.1. A Mozilla release just wouldn't be the same without an article from Slashdot and the site offers up the usual collection of user comments. The more mainstream ZDNet News concentrates on the speed and stability improvements of the new version while delivers little more than a rehash of the Release Notes. Thanks to everyone who sent us links to news.

UPDATE! CNET has an article focussing on consumer reaction to the new release. The report sums up the feedback as "mixed", though this does seem to be largely based on a single Slashdot comment.

#11 Major Disappointment

I've been a user of Moz since the last few milestones before 1.0, so I fully agree with CNet's report of 1.1 as a "mixed" product. On the one hand, it's noticeably faster at page-loading, but it also crashes regularly, which didn't happen with 1.0 and even some earlier builds. What's annoying is that some major sites can crash the browser, such as ebay's personalized pages.
