Mozilla reaches 1.0. It looks like it was four years in the making. That says something about the speed of open source development, or the project management, or the scope.

Maybe scope. I like Bill’s description: The OpenSource version of the NetScape Navigator browser. Or, a RichClient development platform.

So far I’ve tried the Windows version and I’m pretty happy. The default theme, or whatever the skin is called, resembles good ol’ Netscape 4. Pages load fast and, my biggest problem with IE/Win, it knows that when I type Google into the URL box that I want to go to The page up and down keys don’t work like I expect (read: like they’re supposed to), but that’s a small price to pay. It’s a good first impression.
