    Hey, check it out. The newest browser from the Mozilla gang is out!
    Man it's alot better, one of the best improvements is that now it knows what to do with all those problematic file types, like .WMA, and the others.
    Plus the download manager has been revamped and it's faster and delete actually works now if you're into that kind of thing.

    Anyways, here's the link!
    http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

    The whole Mozilla site is lagged right now, but I guess that's a good sign! It's getting recognized! As usual, support what isn't
    Micro$oft. Personally I haven't used IE in months; once you get the flash and java plugins installed, there is NOTHING bad about Firebird, or now FireFOX.

    Give it a try guys! Don't be another Micro$ucky Llamma :snip: BRRAAAAWWWWWRRR

    Laters,

    as long as it is still the same great browser I've been using since it was called phoenix, I'll be happy.

    0.8 was due last month, but I'm excited that it's finally arrived :D

    *Thunderbird 0.5 (email) as also been released
    Mozilla Firebird evolves into the new Firefox 0.8 release. Thunderbird 0.5 released.

    February 9, 2004 (the Internet) - The Mozilla Foundation today announced the immediate availability of a new preview release of its next generation web browser, Mozilla Firefox. Mozilla Firefox 0.8 represents the bleeding edge of Internet technology and raises the bar for ease of use, performance, robustness and standards compliance.

    The new release marks a significant milestone on the development roadmap towards the highly anticipated 1.0 release of the Mozilla project’s next generation web browser. New features in this release include:

    * A powerful new download manager that makes tracking multiple downloads easier;
    * Numerous improvements to bookmarks handling, making it easier than ever to keep track of your favorite sites;
    * Improved handling of extensions - small, easy to download applications that can be installed with a few simple mouse clicks and extend the browser’s functionality. Community members have created more than 200 such extensions, including add-ons that remove ad banners, add spell-checker functionality, and add the ability to search Amazon.com, eBay or other popular sites from the Firefox toolbar;
    * An easy to use installer for Microsoft Windows users;
    * A new default theme for Mac OS X users that integrates seamlessly with the OS X desktop environment.

    Firefox 0.8 continues to build increasing levels of performance and stability into the browser. Hundreds of volunteer developers and testers contributed numerous bug fixes, new features and security improvements during this development cycle, again demonstrating the strength of the open source community’s commitment to powerful, stable and secure applications.

    The new release also marks a name change for the new browser, which was previously known as Mozilla Firebird. “We are pleased to release a new preview version of Mozilla Firefox,” commented Mitchell Baker, President of the Mozilla Foundation. “To avoid overlap with another open source project, we have also decided to changed the name of this product from Mozilla Firebird to Mozilla Firefox.”

    Along with the new name, Firefox sports a new logo and the Mozilla Foundation is kicking off a grass-roots Get Firefox campaign to spread word about the new browser.

    Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5: Enterprise-grade email

    The Mozilla Foundation also announced the latest preview release of its new email application, Mozilla Thunderbird.

    Responding to strong interest in Thunderbird among enterprises and educational institutions, Thunderbird 0.5 includes numerous improvements aimed at enterprise users:

    * The ability to synchronize address books with Palm devices;
    * IMAP performance and interoperability improvements;
    * Secure password authentication using SSPI NTLM for SMTP and POP3;
    * Improved LDAP support;
    * Improved migration from Netscape 4.x;
    * Improved spell checker and English dictionary;
    * Numerous other bug fixes and improvements.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Sweet! :thumb: I didn't know Thunderbird 5 came out. I personally like the Firefox + Thunderbird much better than the whole inegrated Mozilla deal. It seems to be faster and more configurable.

    Just got it installed, its nice for it to finally be an installer. Not to mention the fact it imports all your old Firebird settings. The DL manager is also a big plus for me being on dialup :D
