Mozilla 1.7 Alpha Released

Monday February 23rd, 2004

The Mozilla Foundation has just unveiled Mozilla 1.7 Alpha. This release features improved popup blocking, with a better method for detecting and stopping popups and the ability to open blocked popups. Mail & Newsgroups now supports multiple mail identities per mail account (though there is no user interface for this yet) and also sports several usability enhancements. In addition, this version of Mozilla adds support for the onBeforeUnload event and includes a newer and enhanced version of ChatZilla, which now understands the /ignore command. Mozilla 1.7 Alpha is also smaller than 1.6 and page load times have improved since the last release.

Get a build from the Mozilla Releases page or direct from the mozilla1.7a directory on More information can be found in the Mozilla 1.7 Alpha Release Notes.

I hate this one way mozilla -> mozilla Firefox route. All the good stuff goes into mozilla Firefox, which is good, but nothing of the goodies comes back to mozilla. Why is that? What you ask. Well, I would love to see the Toolbar Configurator, or whatever its name is, implemented in mozilla. It can be done, but they don't do this, but why not?

I might be wrong or misinformed. I guess Asa, Ben or Blake would know best. Please let me know what I've been missing.

I also like to know if Sun is going to support/use mozilla Firefox or that they stick to the suite for their 'new' desktop software.
