Mozilla 1.5 Release Candidate 2 Out

Friday September 26th, 2003

The second release candidate of Mozilla 1.5 is now available for download. This new test build contains around twenty fixes that were not in Release Candidate 1, including a new preference for specifying whether opening a bookmark group should replace the existing tabs or append the new pages to the current set. As usual, builds can be downloaded from the mozilla.org Releases page or direct from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.5rc2. Consult the Mozilla 1.5 Release Candidate 2 Release Notes for more information and look out for the final version of Mozilla 1.5 in the first week of October.

I don't know, but that may well be an ideological conflict too (as is the reply top-posting mentioned above). Many technofiles, myself included, think there is far too much Flash on the web, and discourage its use. I don't think Flash should be *included* in Mozilla, much like one of the posters above doesn't think live HTTP headers should be part of Mozilla, but it would be good to have it as an extension that doesn't require an installer to be downloaded and run.
