Mozilla 1.2 - Get It While It's Hot!

Tuesday November 26th, 2002 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.

The bookmark implementation in mozilla is indeed pretty bad. I can live with it but I see everyday it is flawed. To mention just a few anoying things:

- sorting makes it impossible to rearrange your bookmarks. The sorted view does not stay sorted anyway if you add new bookmarks so what's the point of using it?

- with multiple windows open, the sidebar does not update correctly.

- all versions of mozilla, including 1.2 have issues with drag & drop of bookmarks.

- middle click on a bookmark in the sidebar (or any link in the sidebar) does not have the expected behavior of opening a new tab (if you set the preference to open new tabs on middle clicks).

- internet explorer favorites are read only, there is no real import function for them.

- url icons are not stored for bookmarks.

There are also many nice bookmark features that I don't use. However, you should give mozilla credit for bookmark groups and bookmark keywords.
