M11 is out!

Tuesday November 16th, 1999

M11 binaries are now available on the 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.

#9 Slow slow slow

I _really_ hope they get the speed fixed. This browser is now more stable that Netscape 4.7 on my machine (woohoo!), but sadly it's orders of magnitudes slower, both in the user interface (where the slow speed sometimes means that the wrong part of the UI gets messages - e.g. menus instead of text boxes getting keypresses) and in rendering speeds.

It's a shame because people are going to see this and say that the new layout engine just isn't fast at all.
