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 ftp.mozilla.org. More information can be found in the Mozilla 1.7 Alpha Release Notes.

Maybe Asa was not clear?

~% host <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> has address 207.200.85.49 <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> has address 64.12.168.21 <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> has address 64.12.168.243 <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> has address 128.193.0.3 <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> has address 129.79.5.133 <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> has address 130.207.108.135

So when you ask for <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> you get a random (or possibly load-balanced; I don't know how it's implemented exactly) address from that list.
