Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1 Released

Monday July 28th, 2003

mozilla.org has just released a minor upgrade to their Mozilla Firebird 0.6 milestone, to fix a few key issues regarding security and stability, including the autocomplete crash. Builds are now available, and the 0.6.1 Release Notes and other documentation are being pushed to the site currently.

We expect a 0.7 release to happen later in the Summer, and hope for a 1.0 prior to the end of the year. More information is available about the release plan in the Roadmap doc.

Update: After a short delay, the Mac OS X release of Firebird 0.6.1 is now available from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firebird/releases/0.6.1.

This is my first real experiance away from Mozilla (i always kept it cause of the built in mail) and i gotta say i love it (after using about:config to tweak a couple things for myself)

Its lightweight, quick, and stable... this is GREAT that this browser is the direction the mozilla team is moving in and im quite happy.

Still keeping mozilla around for email, but as of Firebird 0.6.1 it looks like it will become my full time browser...

The GUI definatly needs work, a lot of stuff needs to be added to the Options screen, but its doing extremely well. Very nice!
