Is M12 Alpha?

Thursday December 2nd, 1999

That's what the mozilla developers would like to know. If you're a member of mozillaZine, you can participate in a survey to help gauge our readers' feelings regarding the current pre-M12 builds. If you're not a member, it's easy to become one (and free, too). Just visit our members page and follow the instructions.

Then, visit the survey page, and answer all the questions. You will need to be a member to see the survey results, and you cannot see the results until after you have voted.

If you don't have a current pre-M12 build, you can grab the latest nightly build from our builds page.

If you have tried the builds, but haven't tried things like mail or news, please vote 10 for those questions pertaining to email or newsgroup usage.


#21 Linux? not by a long shot

I can't speak for the windows version, but the Linux version of Mozilla is still unusable. It is _extremely_ slow, the text-entry widgets don't work right, usenet is non-functional, and it crashes in under five minutes.

Perhaps the windows version is getting somewhere, but this is not even close to an alpha-level product right now.

ps, yes I completely delete all of my prefs before installing new versions.
