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.


#64 Not quite, but I do like your logic

The problem with that is the sites that use a two-cell table where one of those cells has a huge embedded table, allowing the other to act as a sidebar. Witness /. and segfault.org. Even in those cases, if you wait for the outer </tr> tag, it won't do any good because the </table> tag follows right after that, and waiting for any inner </tr> tags will still result in some jumping as the new embedded tables in adjacent cells are loaded.

It would still be interesting to see, though. Perhaps a solution could be reached by a side-by-side comparison of the two most proposed compromises: a speed-factored delay like the one described in the comments for Bug #17325 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17325> , and the wait-for-TR proposal here. If such a comparison is possible, they might provide some enlightening results.

They may be two cents, but some pennies are made of gold.
