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.

>>Mozilla is about displaying web pages in the way that web designers intended.

No, it's obviously not about that.

Marquee annoys most everyone except 30 Chinese developers, who could be easily sent to for a xbrowser marquee script and we'd all live in peace. This tag also grossly violates the content/presentation distinction.

I can see why Netscape might add marquee by default, as they like annoying their users, but it shouldn't be in Moz, or should be easily turned off.

When is the new <slideshow> tag going to be added? Or do we still have to write a script for that?
