Mozilla 1.5 Alpha Released

Tuesday July 22nd, 2003

Lots of folks wrote in to let us know that mozilla.org today released Mozilla 1.5 Alpha. Release Notes and a slew of builds are available. New in 1.5a are a number of Composer enhancements, tab browser clean up, and the usual crash and performance fixes.

Looking ahead, mozilla.org hopes to release a Firebird 0.6.1 in the coming week to pick up some of the latest changes, including some crashes that were present in the 0.6 release. Following that, the current plan is to release a Thunderbird 0.1 prior to 1.5b, and a Firebird 0.7 alongside Mozilla 1.5 final, and continue to move towards replacing the trunk with the new standalone applications. More info on all these plans is available in the recently updated roadmap.

I just tried the new 1.5 and its way slower than my 1.4. I have a cable modem speed test page and I usually get 5500+ kpbs. As soon as I installed 1.5 it bogged down to 2200 kpbs and was very sluggish. Went back to 1.4 and speed went back up again.
