Minotaur Trunk Build for Windows Released
Thursday April 10th, 2003
joe wrote in to tell us that the first trunk build of Minotaur is now available for Windows. While earlier Minotaur builds made use of and could share settings with Mozilla profiles, this version — like all builds dated April 7th or later — uses separate Minotaur-specific profiles. However, it is possible to transfer your settings from a Mozilla profile.
You can download this Windows build from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/minotaur/. Look for the 2003-04-09-win32-trunk.zip file. Note that not all of the patches have landed on the trunk yet, so it's not possible to build this version yourself.
Eudora is the official university email client, and it takes longer to load than NS4 on the same computers and is very un-intuitive. Personally I normally wait till I'm home to check my email because mozilla is faster and much easier to use.
AFAIK at the moment minotaur is just Mozilla without chatzilla, composer and navigator. 23MB still sounds like a lot to me though, I thought Mozilla without plugins was atill around the 10MB mark?
