Mozilla 1.2 - Get It While It's Hot!

Tuesday November 26th, 2002

mozilla.org has just released Mozilla 1.2. New to this version (since 1.1) are Type Ahead Find, toolbars as text/icons/both, support for GTK themes on Linux and native style for HTML form controls on Windows XP, multiple tabs as startpage, Link Prefetching, filter after the fact and filter logging in Mail, the ability to sync your addressbook to a Palm device on MS Windows, and much, much more.

Builds are now starting to show up on the ftp servers, and the release notes have been posted. Be sure to check out the updating roadmap, as noted earlier this week.

Somehow you twist my argument to deduce that because some (IMHO very few, I can't deny that there are some) people actually disable images, alt attributes should not be displayed as tooltips. I'm glad the disussion is no longer about standards (the main reason mozilla developers chose to do things differently) but about perceived intentions backed up with 'personal experience'. I don't see how your argument is more convincing in that respect. I have an additional argument though and that is that most browsers display the tooltip. If you add things up, it is more consistent behavior to display the tooltip than not to display it. I find that a quite logical conclusion but apparently some people disagree for reasons that do not go beyond perceived usage of alt attributes.
