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.

>>as well I do not look at all links on a page and do not want them all prefetched for me.

And you didn't actually learn what link prefetching was, did you? It doesn't prefetch all the links on a page. It prefetches documents the page author specified using the LINK tag with rel=next or rel=prefetch. That's not the same as prefetching all of the pages hyperlinked to from that document.

>>I believe this feature is wrong and will cause many internet service providers to hate Mozilla and possibly ban its use.

You clearly don't understand how it works so your beliefs are based on a misunderstanding and need to be reevaluated.
