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.

Another argument that needs to be re-thought. Why would a non-porn page prefetch goatse.cx? To get you in trouble? If they wanted to do that on purpose they could do exactly the same thing loading the page in a hidden IFRAME. Since that would work on IE and Opera as well it'd be much more likely than a prefetching attack.
