M11 is out!

Tuesday November 16th, 1999

M11 binaries are now available on the mozilla.org ftp server in Win32, Linux, and Mac flavors, with more to come.

Things new in this release:

  • New name (mozilla, not apprunner)
  • The new chrome
  • rginda's Chatzilla IRC client enabled (see the Chatzilla page for info on how to test it out)
  • Incremental reflow - still a work in progress, but pages now display as the content comes in and no longer wait for closing tags
Check out the release notes for more.


#38 The Good, the Bad, and the too damn slow

I've been a big supporter of Mozilla since the begining, telling all my friends how it was the next big thing, but I gotta say as Mozilla approaches beta...they really got to speed this thing up. I got two major complaints

1) The damn thing renders too slow! 2) I hate how when it is loading a page, the user interface becomes useless. Like, just now I was loading the poll page on mozillazine, and I couldn't hit stop becuase it was still loading. What, exactly, is the point of a stop button that doesn't work while loading pages?

I wonder...does anyone know how, if they will speed this up, or if they even plan to address it? If not...I'll probably keep using 4.7, sad as that sounds. Standards are nice...but people want somethign fast and responsive...noone cares if their car has low emissions, they car if their car can go 0 to 60 in 4 seconds. I hope the people at mozilla realize this.
