Mozilla 1.6 Alpha Released

Friday October 31st, 2003

The Mozilla Foundation has just released Mozilla 1.6 Alpha, the first milestone of the 1.6 development cycle. Amongst its other enhancements, 1.6a features many Mail & Newsgroups improvements, including vCard support, an option to remove mail from a POP server after x days and a preference for placing the user's signature above quoted text when composing an email or newsgroup posting. For more information, see the Mozilla 1.6 Alpha Release Notes. This latest release can be downloaded from the Releases page or directly from the mozilla1.6a directory on

Update: The original Windows builds did not contain the Personal Security Manager, which enables encryption for services such as HTTPS and secure IMAP. This error has now been corrected and new builds are available. Windows users who have had problems accessing secure Web pages or using other secure Internet protocols should re-download.

#23 yes, though ...

there are probably more channels to get Mozilla than just the direct downloads. Mozilla gets mirrored more often and is included in many linux distros. I also know many cases where MozillaSuite is used in companies or research institutes (where it is much more popular than FB/TB), where only one copy is downloaded but many people use it, so download stats should always been taken with a grain of salt, no matter what you want to prove with them :)
