Mozilla 1.7 Release Candidate 3 Available

Tuesday June 8th, 2004

dmbtech writes "Mozilla 1.7 RC3 was released today. This is the final-draft-like release for the stable 1.7 milestone. This release is similar to RC2 and RC1 which are released to find any late-breaking bugs. This will probably be the last release candidate before 1.7 final comes out. 1.7 as you might know is replacing the 1.4 as the stable branch, and is being used for the Firefox 1.0 milestone." The Mozilla 1.7 RC 3 Release Notes are available, and downloads can be found on the releases page and the mozilla1.7rc3 directory on ftp.mozilla.org.


#13 1.7-rc3 is good.

after installing the earlier 1.7-rc1 release the day it came out, i later found a TON on problems listed here at mozillazine on 1.7-rc1, and luckily had only installed at work, not at home as well, like i normally would have. dozens & dozens of posts on 1.7-rc1; if only i had checked here first i would have stayed with 1.7 beta a while longer...------that was then, this is now; i am VERY happy with 1.7rc3, and had checked after 1 day here, and saw less than a dozen posts. knew it would be safe, since any major headaches would have drawn a lot of fire. looked safe, and it was (at least for me). all the 1.7b & 1.7rc1 & 1.7rc2 bugs i knew of seem to have evaporated :) i know, i know, some people still have some, but for my usage, this is the best i have seen ever in a browser. keep up the good work! as the BugBlog author once wrote (<http://www.bjkresearch.com/bugblog/bb0405.cfm#27>): "as a Mozilla user I say that you are only taking Mozilla away when you pry it from my cold, dead hands." i could not agree more.
