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.
And yet nightly builds are lovely fast as long as you have RAM free. Apart from that everyone seems happy to make it Alpha.
How about just releasing with some nice big warning requirements for RAM and processor speed?
