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.

Marquee is supported by default because not supporting it breaks some major web sites. Mozilla is about displaying web pages in the way that web designers intended. Sometimes that means using quirks mode instead of strictly following the standards. In the case of marquee, it sometimes means recognizing HTML that is not part of any web standard.

Mozilla has always been about providing an excellent browsing experience, not blindly and mindlessly following web standards. Mozilla is getting better with each release, and I cannot find any evidence that it's "getting off track."
