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.

I have seen improvements in the Mac port but haven't downloaded the Win32 version in over a month, so I can't compare them. But I do know it the general UI needs some work, things don't line up nicely in Preferences for example. And as far as speed, I know this is probably a debug build but running Mozilla Mail,etc. on MacOS 9 a 400Mhz G3 with 64MB of RAM is painful to watch. It just seems slow and Communicator is easier to work with for long periods of time.

But I don't want to just come off complaining, I think the browser looks and feels great and I just can wait till all the features are turned on and stable.
