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.


#75 I am tossing Mozilla out - somebody made a booboo

Installing Mozilla 1.0 was exciting unitil I found out that I can no longer edit my Bookmarks intelligently. The search function only finds the URLs, but does not tell you where they are (who is the jerk who decided that?) The results show up in a new window, without indicating which bookmark directory they are in. You can only click them to go to the page. Therefore, I have to do a search again to use the bookmark again. That sure is stupid. My bookmark file has built up over the years to over 10,000 entries and I work hard to keep them organized, but now, without seaching sucessively to the next bookmark and allowing me to drag it to the directory I want it in, I can kiss clean bookmark organization goodbye. Well... I actually will kiss Mozilla good-bye, as the still birth that it is, even though tabbed browsing is much desired. Too bad... I am cheer for free software, but there are people making bad decisions and I feel locked out.
