Mozilla 1.4 Beta Released

Thursday May 8th, 2003

Mozilla 1.4 Beta was released yesterday. This release allows you to separately specify whether a blank page, your home page or the last page you visited loads when you initially start Navigator, open a new window or open a new tab. It's also now possible to specify the default font, size and colour of text when composing HTML mail and Mail & Newsgroups now has support for CRAM-MD5 authentication. Image blocking and disabling is now more flexible, allowing you to optionally view images that have not been loaded, and the 'Launch File' button in the download dialogue or Download Manager now works after downloading an executable. Proxy auto-config failover has also been implemented and Mozilla can now be built using GCC on Windows. Read the Mozilla 1.4 Beta Release Notes for more information and download the new version from the Releases page or the mozilla1.4b directory on's FTP site.

I don't know a whole lot about XFT but would it be possible to detect whether or not the session is XFT capable at runtime? Or even just add a switch when running mozilla --xft or something? Or is adding XFT support an "all or nothing" thing?
