Friday December 13th, 2002

Mozilla 1.3 Alpha is out!

There's also improvements to the DOM Inspector and lots of other bug fixes. However, remember that this is only an alpha release, so expect bugs.

The user said he 'didn't trust Mozilla to decide what is junk, [because] he didn't want to lose any data'. While I can understand not wanting to lose data, that point was completely invalid. All Mozilla does is *mark* a message as spam, or not spam, and then the user can decide what to do with it by means of filters. Want to be on the safe side? Fine, just let Mozilla move spam messages to a separate directory for a while, until you gain more trust in it. You'll see it hardly ever makes mistakes and never any false positives once you've trained it with a good amount of spam and non-spam messages.
