Mozilla Firebird 0.7 Released

Wednesday October 15th, 2003

The latest milestone of the Mozilla Foundation's standalone browser was released today. Based on Mozilla 1.5, Mozilla Firebird 0.7 features several enhancements, including support for webpage content in the sidebar, a stylesheet selector and a better Options dialogue. Some of these new features were examined in MozillaZine's August article on Firebird. Version 0.7 also contains numerous other changes.

Download a build today from the new download page or the Firebird 0.7 directory on ftp.mozilla.org. Also, don't forget to check out the new Mozilla Firebird product page, which has lots of information for end users.

Hello blazing flunky. I think they should change the name because they said they would, and they were wrong to use it originally. I would like to comment on other aspects of the browser but there does not seem to be anything noteworthy. With no moral standing and no outstanding features, the project seems stagnated to me. I had a desire for Netscape to survive Microsoft for a long time. Now that I have abandoned that hopeless struggle, I have a desire for any web browser to overcome Internet Explorer. Mozilla could do this if they would stop behaving like Microsoft. Microsoft may win by using underhanded tactics and covering mistakes. Mozilla should win by confessing mistakes and resolving issues (even if they are just naming disputes). They will never be as good as Microsoft at being evil, so they had better try something else.
