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 internetnews.com delivers little more than a rehash of the Release Notes. Thanks to everyone who sent us links to news.

UPDATE! CNET News.com 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.

Its nice to see Mozilla 1.1 is out and running so smoothly, its quite fast i must say. I know they improved the compatability with those gimp web pages coded more for IE, but it would be nice if they added a bit more. Like <http://www.nvidia.com> , for example, the menu bar popups dont work (as they do in IE) and im sure this is because the page is coded more for IE it would certainly be nice to see something like this work, and obviously there are more pages that could benifit too.

Nonetheless, another great release.
