Full Article Attached Mozilla 1.4 Alpha Coming Soon

Monday March 17th, 2003

Asa Dotzler has posted a message about the forthcoming 1.4 Alpha release to netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey. A number of Mozilla vendors have plans for 1.4 so it is important that both quality and scheduling targets are met in the development cycle. This means that the period between the freeze for 1.4 Alpha and its subsequent release will be days rather than weeks. Right now the freeze is scheduled for midnight on Wednesday 26th March with the release targetted for Friday 28th March.

Thanks to John for the link to Asa's newsgroup posting.

"I think this is done on purpose by the web site writers. Yahoo does this too. If the web site doesn't want us to save passwords (ie: for security reasons), should we break protocol in order to save them?"

There is no protocol. IE introduced an autocomplete="off" attribute that sites could use to disable the saving of passwords and form data. Mozilla originally didn't support this but several online banks threatened to block Mozilla unless it was implemented, so support was added.
