Mozilla 1.4 and Netscape 7.1 News and Reviews

Sunday July 6th, 2003

It's almost a week since the double release of Mozilla 1.4 and Netscape 7.1. The new Netscape version came out first and it was reported on by Slashdot, and Macworld UK. Mozilla 1.4 followed shortly after, leading to articles at Slashdot (again),, (again), FootNotes and the Temple of the Screaming Penguin. As the two browsers came out on the same day, several sites — including ZDNet News, Techweb, The Mac Observer and OSNews — produced single reports for both releases. Meanwhile, CNET and Ars Technica tied their stories in with Marc Andreessen's recent comments that browser innovation is dead.

In the reviews department, eWeek examined Mozilla 1.4 (with some comments on the new Netscape version) and The Inquirer took a look at Netscape 7.1.

Finally, for those who think that Mozilla 1.4 doesn't offer any real improvements, Asa Dotzler has a changelog. Thanks to everyone who sent us links to articles.

I've upgraded to 1.4 and I'm having problems loading in some extensions for Mozdev. So far I've tried Checky and Cardgames. They install OK, I restart Mozilla, but then nothing. I can't access cardgames via chrome://cards/content/ and Check doesn't appear in the pop-up menu.

They are listed in the installed-chrome.txt file, but not in the chromelist.txt file (don't know if this is significant).

Is anybody else having problems with loading extensions in 1.4? Or does anybody have any idea if there is an issue with the above extenstions?

I've tried the old uninstall and delete everything then reinstall trick, but still no joy.
