Mozilla 1.4.2 Released

Monday May 10th, 2004

Thanks to herman for informing us that Mozilla 1.4.2 came out a little over a week ago. This latest release from the 1.4 branch features only bug fixes (no new features) and will be mainly of interest to developers building products from the stable branch. Most end-users will want Mozilla 1.6 or the upcoming Mozilla 1.7.

More information about Mozilla 1.4.2 can be found in the Mozilla 1.4.2 Release Notes, with builds available from the mozilla1.4.2 directory on This likely to be the last release from the 1.4 branch; 1.7 is expected to become the new stable baseline after the release of Mozilla 1.7 final in a few weeks.

What you say is quite true, in my opinion. The only thing that I can think of that would server as the next "killer feature" is flash blocking. I don't think they will implement it though, because that would make some comercial interests angry (yes, I know about Adblock, but there is a big difference between an add-in and a feature being installed by default). Besides that, they could try to improve existing features, such as download manager and form manager
