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.

"Netscape cares, so let Netscape have marquee. Done. Seems a very clean, clear solution. Why Netscape forced it into Moz, and Moz allowed it, I don't understand."

It's not just Netscape that wants it. Other _major_ distributors like RedHat want this class of fixes. They want a Web browser that displays web pages and doesn't piss off users. Netscape didn't force anything. mozilla.org was asked if we wanted the code contribution and mozilla.org staff said "yes."
