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.

Well I regularly test out the Win32 builds (because I have frickin' a Windoze PC) and I sometimes download Mozilla builds to run on the Macs at my work. On a older G3 with MacOS 8.51 and 64 megs of RAM, it ran just as fast as my Pentium 233MHz MMX with 96 megs of ran and Windoze 98, or at least fairly close.

Although the first time it takes for it to start up takes forever, much longer than on with Windoze, but it's much closer to the MozWin32 start up speed after the first time.

There are a few other things I've noticed that in the Mac builds were a little slower than the PC builds but a great improvement in the Mac builds.

Although I want to test Mozilla on the iMacs there because they only have 32 megs of RAM.
