M5 May Show Up Tomorrow
Wednesday May 5th, 1999
The final browser for Milestone 5 may be released tomorrow, according to mozilla.org. Thanks to I. Ramirez for the news.
Also, we'll soon have some screens of a great new feature which has made it into the builds, so check back.

M5 is out now.
Go to <http://www.betanews.com> and read what they have about M5. Any comments????
No one ever said that Mozilla was explicitly against Microsoft as such, but then the vast majority of us (presumably) support Mozilla and NOT Microsoft output. :)
<p> I just downloaded the Linux binaries, and have to admit that I was positively surprised. The install was easier than before (no need for setting env variables or anything, just run the 'Zilla). <p> And the stability has also gone to a new level. I have now been running it for a few minutes, checking out how it does with some harder sites to render. And it hasn't crasheed even once. Hell, my NS 4.51 used to crash with glibc 2.1 more often. ;-) <p> (and yes, this is posted from M5) <p> Well done, Mozilla people!
Oops. Sorry about the last post. Somehow I managed to read the text as "HTML is allowed". :-(
about Betanews: a bit strange to conclude that all netscape developers still (?) prefer IE because there was one html file made with frontpage express!
BetaNews = Beta Quality News
What's up with them Using Microsoft Frontpage 2.0??? What the heck? What were they thiking? That is the crapiest thing I have ever layed my eyes on. Even the first release of composer was better.

I am responsible for MozillaControl.html.
I know Frontpage is crappy but it is convenient hence the reason it was used here. I just wanted something quick and dirty to show content in the control to prove it is actually working. If someone cares _that_ strongly about my choice of editor, I might change the HTML source so it no longer says FrontPage in it :)
For the record, I have used FP (and also HotMeTaL in the past) for the control project home page. It's OK as an editor but it trashes well-formed documents and wraps text to 80 columns. For these reasons I will probably switch to something else soon.

HomeSite!!!!!!! 'nuff said
(ScriptBuilder's pretty nice too, if your debugging/figuring out someone else's code)
Me thinks this is a tad off topic though.

I write for them sometimes, but unfortunatly they edit it alot (including the M5 released article). I've literally been bugging them 24/7 about the new site format and news tactics.
hopefully it will be better soon

Homesite rules, I've been using it for a few weeks now and I purchased the full version. Great features, and it doesn't mess up your code.
Oh yes, and you're not supporting the DEVIL by using it ;)

Who actually cares what Adam Lock used to create one measly page?? Let him use Notepad if he wants, for Gods sake! As long as Mozilla pulls through, I'm happy.
Meanwhile, back at the Mozilla ranch...
I hate to tell you this, but HS uses IE/ActiveX for its visual display...
Use Macromedia Dreamweaver. :-)
homesite _will_ be able to use the mozilla/activex soon.
