Firefox Pre-Preview Release Available for Testing
Saturday September 11th, 2004
Asa Dotzler writes "We took one more important change into the builds last night, moving from a blacklist to a whitelist for external protocol handlers, so today's builds are the new candidate 1.0PR builds. If all goes well with these builds, they'll become the official Firefox 1.0 Preview Release builds on Tuesday morning. Please help us test these bits and if you find any major regressions, please file bugs and nominate those as PR blockers with the bug flag "blocking-aviary1.0PR?" so that the Aviary team will see.
Note that this is not the final 1.0 Preview Release. That will happen on Tuesday if all goes well with the testing of these candidate builds. We appreciate any and all help testing the candidates and strongly encourage you to report any problems. Only you can prevent buggy releases ;-)"

This is a great browser. The only problem for ne is the memory usage. Right now, I just reboot the computer, I have only one Firefox window (and 1 tab) and it is taking 34 MB of memory. Many time it goes up to 50 MB or more. I compared with Mozilla 1.73 and MS IE and these use less memory.
