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 disagree with that. Now certainly you're right in a lot of cases, but where the devs have a different idea than the users, they tend to close their ears. Remember that ugly lizard splash screen that everyone I know cringed at? It was very unprofessional and yet stayed for years. Did you see the request for putting signatures on top of quoted text when replying to emails? Virtually every person who has to deal with businesses know that's a necessity, and yet it's still not in because, most of the devs say, top-posting is high crime in newsgroup postings. NEWSGROUPS! Now the lovely little password manager is degraded to IE's version. I can go on and on, but when it comes to visible user prefs, it won't happen if the devs think it's wrong, even if huge numbers of users want a choice.
