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.

Very true Asa.. I personally agree with you, but the public doesn't.

yes, many products in Beta are even worse that this is.. but this isn't just ANY program, this is the next generation browser by netscape, that everyone and their dog have been waiting for.

One wisp of "alpha" on any news site, will pour in thousands of people downloading Mozilla. Sure this is great, but these are the same people who have download the ICQ99Alpha, wich in my experience rocked and had very very few bugs.

The word Apha has been misleading by the media.. it now seems to mean, Almost Beta, and Betas are not suposed to be almost flawless.

Sorry to bust your bubble.. but that's how it seems to be.
