Mozilla Firefox 0.9 Released
Monday June 14th, 2004
The Mozilla Foundation today released Mozilla Firefox 0.9, and now begins its final push towards a 1.0 release of Firefox. New features in this release include a new default theme, a new browser migration tool, reworked theme and extension managers, a much smaller download size, a new help system, and many small bug fixes and speed tweaks. More on what's new can be found in the Burning Edge's Bigger Picture or in the Mozilla Foundation's press release about Firefox 0.9.
Along with the new Theme and Extension managers, is a preview of the new update.mozilla.org website, which will be the new home for themes and extensions for all the Mozilla products, as well as possible updates to the products themselves. The site is expected to be completed sometime in the next week.
Firefox 0.9 marks the completion of major feature work in Firefox for 1.0, with only incremental improvements remaining for the drive towards beta sometime next month. More information about future releases is available on the Firefox Roadmap.
Builds are currently available from the Firefox releases page, along with the current set of Release Notes, or directly from the 0.9 directory on ftp.mozilla.org. (All builds are currently being pushed to FTP, some FTP servers may be behind, please be patient!)

In use the stop button is actually red so little that I don't really mind it. Also, if you don't like the vertical drop shadows, you can use the small icons and the vertical drop shadows are gone. However, then the download icon is just a down arrow on top of a gradient background and doesn't really look like what they were intending. The home button is ugly in either big or small, and why did they change the mac icons? They were so nice before.
