Mozilla Firebird 0.6 Released

Friday May 16th, 2003

At last, Mozilla Firebird 0.6 has been released! A lot of changes have been made since the last version of the browser — then known as Phoenix — came out in December. The most noticeable of these is a new default theme, based on Qute by Arvid Axelsson. The Preferences dialogue has been replaced with a redesigned Options dialogue and you can now clear your history, cookies, cache etc. with a single click. Many improvements have been made to the bookmarks system, including an IE-style context menu for items in the Bookmarks menu. In addition, this release includes Quality Feedback Agent (Talkback), allowing crash data to be sent directly back to the developers. Mozilla Firebird 0.6 also features many of the enhancements that have been made to the Mozilla Application Suite, including automatic resizing of large images to fit in the browser window and smooth scrolling.

Read the Mozilla Firebird 0.6 Release Notes for more information and grab a download from Builds are available for Windows, Linux and now Mac OS X. As explained in the new Mozilla Development Roadmap, Firebird and its mail/news client sister Mozilla Thunderbird will become the focus of future development after Mozilla 1.4 is released.

"Why exactly is this?"

Both groups attempted to justify an obviously immoral act with an otherwise pointless claim.

"what should Apple have called the ninth version of their OS?"

Mozilla 9.

"how was Microsoft's plan of integrating IE with the system *avoiding* an antitrust violation?"

I did not say they avoided an antitrust violation. I said that was their plan. They attempted to justify an immoral act with a pointless claim (Internet Explorer cannot be separated from Windows). I compared them to Mozilla because Mozilla also attempted to justify an immoral act with a pointless claim (Firebird is just a codename).
