Third Alpha Milestone Added to Mozilla 1.8 Cycle

Tuesday August 3rd, 2004

Asa Dotzler has announced that there will be a third Mozilla 1.8 alpha milestone before the beta phase starts. This change is intended to prevent the final 1.8 release from clashing with the launches of Mozilla Firefox 1.0 and Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0. The updated Mozilla Development Roadmap targets Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 3 for a Friday 13th August release. As a result, the beta milestone and the creation of a 1.8 branch have both been moved out a further six weeks.

The suite is not a browser, it includes one, so I can say it is a better browser refering to the bowser part. What is better in FF? As I recall: It is a smaller download, but there are far more releases so you end up downloading it more times. It loads faster, but the suite's browser loads even faster when I have the mailnews component running. There are more themes: I like modern. There are more extensions: some are buggy (you have to test for yourself) or incomplete and many are to restore the things the suite already has.
