Next Version of Netscape to be Based on Mozilla 1.4

Wednesday May 14th, 2003

T_Moz wrote in to tell us that the next Netscape browser release will be based on a branch of Mozilla 1.4. The news was confirmed by Netscape DevEdge in a story announcing the availability of Mozilla 1.4 Beta. Netscape's decision to base their next version on 1.4 has been widely anticipated, particularly since the new Mozilla Development Roadmap was unveiled last month.

Yep. Unless you'd doing actual active testing, there is little reason to run the nightlies or alpha releases...

But I suspect that 1.5-1.6 will see enough good changes to the back end to make it worth updating (quite apart from the Firebird changes).
