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.

Hmm. zevious said: "If you want Firebird and Thunderbird, just use them . (Like the rest of us)" where surely "Like the rest of us" meant "the rest of us that are using Firebird and Thunderbird even though they are not yet the primary release or are not yet final (1.0) releases" to which bugs4hj somewhat defensively responeded: "I guess you've never actually seen the number of downloads for mozilla suit builds!?!" to which I responded: "Actually, Firebird download numbers are swiftly approaching SeaMonkey download numbers" to which you responded: "download stats should always been taken with a grain of salt, no matter what you want to prove with them".

Maybe you meant to respond to bugs4hj and not me?
