Context Menus And More!

Thursday September 30th, 1999

FrodoB writes, "Contextual menus landed in the past few days, thanks to some great work by Bill Law. Sans some bugs, the Lizard has just gotten a good deal closer to generally usable."

The context menus are a tad slow as of yet, but that should change soon. Also, you can make a selection and scroll the page with it. There are still bugs, but it's a great help, and brings Mozilla one step closer towards becoming a daily-use browser. Check out the recent nightly builds for your platform when you get a chance, and submit bug reports!

Also, the developers will be putting out an M10 release after all, and it should show up on the FTP site in a few days. According to a recent post in the newsgroups, they have done a little schedule restructuring and are shooting for a 12/15/99 Mozilla beta release. [note that this isn't a Communicator beta - that will occur later]

I dunno, I think it may be too late for Netscape and Mozilla to regain lost ground to IE.

WE know that Mozilla will kick ARSE, and WE are prepared to wait, but will Joe Public switch from IE5?? I doubt it.

Will AOL 5.0 make a difference? Nah. I'm not that familiar with AOL, but I get e-mail from people using AOL 3.0 and 2.0, even 1.0. So I guess you don't have to upgrade.

As I said before, I and it seems most other MZ readers can wait for a kick arse browser, but I can't see the 75% of Web users using IE switching. D'oh!
