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 not good as a standards reference. It supports invalid HTML and nonstandard and deprecated tags. If you want to validate your HTML, use an HTML validator.

> please Moz don't slide into the proprietary quagmire!!

As I've mentioned several times, Mozilla has supported proprietary tags for years. What is it about the marquee tag that suddenly seems to change things?
