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.

<marquee> is not part of any standard, and is thus not recognized by Mozilla in standard-compliant mode. To the best of my knowledge, <marquee> is only supported in quirks-mode, a mode specifically designed to emulate quirks of other browsers to make the browsing experience smoother while sites transition to standard-based markup. Hence, I see nothing wrong with implementing support for <marquee> in quirks-mode.
