I installed Mozilla today. First impressions of this new browser is it is faster that IE6 and I kinda like the idea of the tabed browser window, which lets you browse multiple sites in the one window.
* MOZILLA 1.0 RELEASED
After more than 4 years of development, the open-source
browser-suite project called Mozilla has reached its first major
release. Mozilla 1.0 is based on the Gecko rendering engine, which
provides the display technology behind the suite's Navigator Web
browser, email and newsgroup client, chat client, HTML editor, and
address book. But the software's real promise is that developers can
use its open, component-based design as the basis for other products.
And Mozilla runs on multiple platforms, including Windows, Linux,
UNIX, Mac OS (classic), and Mac OS X.
"Mozilla.org is excited about releasing the Mozilla 1.0 code and
development tools to the open source community, and providing
developers with the resources they need to freely create and view the
presentation of their content and data on the Web," said Morilla.org's
Chief Lizard Wrangler Mitchell Baker (yes, that's his title). "As the
browser has become the main interface between users and the Web over
the past several years, the goal of the Mozilla project is to innovate
and enable the creation of standards-compliant technology to keep
content on the Web open."
Mozilla 1.0 probably has a bright future, despite entering a Microsoft
Internet Explorer (IE)-dominated market. Developers will integrate
Mozilla technology into Netscape 7.0, future AOL and Compuserve
clients, most Linux distributions, and other software projects,
including online calendars, media players, and office-productivity
suites. For more information about Mozilla and the free download,
