http://www.mozilla.org/roadmap.html

I read this little tidbit on slashdot, and the roadmap seems to confirm it. A little tidbit I seem to have missed apprently. But after 1.4 mozilla will stop being a suite application, and break off into it's seperate components (ie seperate broswer, mail client, composer). A very non-microsoftian move if I do say so myself smile.gif

And in related news, the Mozilla 1.4 RC2 is out, so bleeding-edge mozillians, head on over to mozilla.org to download.

Yep. I saw that this morning. I am not going to download it yet though. I am just going to wait until 1.4 becomes final. They are trying to make it really stable and dependable since it will be the last of its kind. I might stick with 1.4 for a long time if I don't like the changes in 1.5...

I can't wait to try 1.5.... It will be sort of neat... cool.gif I don't want to try these early builds though.

I'm the same way, don't like to use beta software for something I use often - wait till it's released and ready for productivity use. dancingbanada.gif

well I was tak, when I was using windows, but now I am back on linux and I havent hear the greatest things about Opera on linux. Konqueror is nice, but get's annoying and lacks a little. I have yet to try Galeon. But for now, I think I might switch between mozilla and konq.

Why don't you try Firebird? It's okay, but I think it lacks some of Mozilla's "Completeness". smile.gif

I can honestly say that IE was my fastest browser and the one I most enjoyed.

well I went ahead and snagged RC2, but then again I was running the alpha anyway, so it's an upgrade tongue.gif. I just installed it like 2 sec ago, so I can't really make any impressions on it yet, but as far as stability concerns, I rarely ran into any kind of problems with the alpha, and when I mean rarely I mean still a lot less than with IE and a couple service packs laugh.gif

Actually, it took me a while to like opera more than IE (we have to admit, Opera is better than IE tongue.gif ) but I got ajusted, it's just a big change. From Opera to Mozilla was not that big of a leap as they are almost the same, but Mozilla renders things better.

what I hated about IE was the fact that this always happend out of the blue and the fact that it does not load stuff as it downloads, but wait till it's done, with tables. I remember the photo gallery would take several minutes before it would show up, all in one shot.

But that click sound adds alot. I kind of felt weird not to hear it after I switched. laugh.gif

Cool. cool.gif Be sure to report back with what you think of it. smile.gif

I have started using the .zip builds.... When I upgrade, I just delete that whole Mozilla folder I unzipped and replace it with the new one, right? Of course, I would keep the plugins folder and then put the plugins back in...... cool.gif

I ment, as for the look and function, but as for stability... Opera always crashed on me, more than IE, so it was still a bigger leap in that departement. tongue.gif

That scared me! ohmy.gif

Opera crashed a lot on me too.... banghead.gif When I was using 1.4b, Mozilla would crash whenever I did a drag and drop with text, but that was a beta so I sort of expected problems. It doesn't crash 1.3.1 though. cool.gif

I don't see what's so good about Opera. I mean, it doesn't render a lot of things correctly, it crashes a lot, its mail software sucks, tabbed browsing doesn't work well (For me anyway), it's not really faster, and worst of all..... IT HAS ADS! banghead.gif banghead.gif

Yeah, the ads really bugged me, they caused animation to go all slow and stuff. I never had a problem with tabbed browsing though, and it's not the "fastest browser on earth", I find mozilla to be the fastest I've tried. Linux ones are probably faster but that's also affected by Linux's good IP sockets.

Speaking of Linux, I'll have to figure out how to get that old Pentium to boot so I can play around with a router distro, but it seems the motherboard is fried.

Opera's tabbed browsing was a problem for me because I couldn't click on my mouse wheel to open a link in a tab. That was so ANNOYING! I would have to do some crazy mouse gesture to open something in the background, and I hated it. banghead.gif banghead.gif

Mozilla's tabbed browsing is easier in my opinion. cool.gif I love tabbed browsing, and I don't think I could live without it now. biggrin.gif

opera for windows for me is indeed the fastest browser. jacked up the max connections and max servers to 32 and 20 and boom! loaded pages pretty much instantly. opera for linux on the other hand turned out to a be a waste. konqueror for me turned out to be the best browser for everyday use. mozilla's a fine browser though. i just don't use it that much. cool.gif
