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.

"I just feel sentimental about the pureness of Mozilla that we used to flaunt about. "

When did you flaunt about Mozilla "pureness"? From the first apprunner builds with XPFE Mozilla's been far from pure (if by pure you mean not including extensions beyond what is specifically proposed by the w3c). <…ed/public/nsCSSPropList.h> shows non-standard extensions to CSS going back to 1999 and I'm sure there was plenty non-standard before then.

I have been known to flaunt Mozilla's world-beating standards support. Mozilla supports more of the standards properly and with fewer bugs than any other browser on the planet. That is very different from saying that Mozilla supports _only_ the standards and anyone that's been bragging about Mozilla supporting _only_ the standards has been praising Mozilla for something it isn't and hasn't ever been since it's inception.
