Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 4

Mozilla features fully compliant standards support including HTML 4.0, XML, CSS, and DOM, and is small, fast, and modular. Since its inception, Mozilla has been built using open source, meaning that the source code is publicly available. Mozilla's interface employs the standard browsing paradigm with back, forward, and refresh buttons. It is skinnable, meaning you can download new looks for it. It features the ability to disable unrequested pop-up windows on Web sites. Mozilla also lets you open multiple browser windows and display multiple Web pages in a single tabbed window at the same time. New features in version 1.7 include a new cross-platform NTLM authentication module, security improvements, and crash fixes.

What's New:

  • Mozilla's pop-up blocker has been greatly improved in Mozilla 1.8a4. (bug 252326.)

  • Mozilla now has underlined accesskey mnemonics in the labels for XUL checkboxes and radio buttons. This makes dialogs easier to use with the keyboard. (bug 68841.)

  • Mozilla's History now shows the referrer. (bug 128398.)

  • The resize of large images to fit the browser window has been improved to restore the image to the larger size centered at the click location. (bug 207219.)

  • With Mozilla 1.8a4, users can now log out of all sites using HTTP Basic authentication. To log out of an auth session, use Tools -> Password Manager -> Log Out. (bug 231529.)

  • Mozilla now supports unprompted NTLM authentication (bug 231529.)

  • 1.8a4 uses gtk2 native keybindings for input and textareas. (bug 257405.)

  • Mozilla can now query the list of printers through CUPS (bug 251754.)

  • Linux Mozilla builds now include the spellcheck in the default install. (bug 253443.)
