Mozilla 1.8a3 Released

Wednesday August 18th, 2004

mozilla.org today has released the third alpha build of 1.8. Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 3 release includes a large amount of backend work, including site-specific CSS rules, transparent windows on Windows and GTK2, and undetected document.all support. See the What's New page for more on what has changed in this release. Builds are available from the mozilla1.8a3 directory on the FTP site, and a full set of 1.8a3 Release Notes is also available.

Update: The attack of the alphas won't stop here: a Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 4 is coming soon. As recently as 1.7, each release cycle had just one alpha milestone; a second alpha was added in time for the 1.8 cycle in May. A few weeks ago, Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 3 was announced to prevent 1.8 clashing with the 1.0 releases of Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird.

There's three things I don't understand about Mozilla. The first is why there's no homepage button. It's not annoying for me that's used to just hit F6 and start typing an URL, but my parents would find that very hard so that would be a showstopper for them. Secondly there's no easy way, if at all, to remove XPI plugins. I find that extremely annoying. Thirdly is the Mozilla Mail rules. I've set up a filter to delete certain emails from my POP3 server, but emails continue to be downloaded. Why is that?
