Mozilla 1.4 Alpha Released

Tuesday April 1st, 2003

Mozilla 1.4 Alpha is here! This release has around 1,000 bug fixes and several new features, including smooth scrolling (disabled by default) and real-time image and table resizing in Composer. There's also support for NTLM authentication on Windows and improvements have been made to Mozilla's Junk Mail Controls and popup blocking features. If that's not enough for you, P3P support is now in there and you should encounter far fewer bookmarking woes with the major changes that have been made to the bookmarks code. Check out the Release Notes for more information and grab a build from the mozilla.org releases page or FTP site, bearing in mind that this is an alpha-quality release.

Glad I'm not the only one who hates the 'tabs opening home page' thing, and the fact that focus doesn't return to the address bar automatically. Ctrl+L does work for me though, as does F6 which does the same thing.

But otherwise I'm generally impressed. And bar a few rendering bugs (such as on <http://www.w3.org/Style/> part of the previous window shows up on the far right), it seems to work fine. That's what I like about Mozilla - the alphas are more stable than the gold builds of IE ;).
