    YAY!!! Another month another Mozilla release.

    They've improved it again and this time its gotten out of the beta...

    Here's the changelog from Mozilla.org

    What's New in Mozilla 1.1

    * Improved application and layout performance
    * Improved stability
    * Improved Web site compatibility
    * Improved CSS, DOM and HTML standards support

    * Distinct window icons for the different Mozilla applications (artwork contributed by Grayrest).
    * Mozilla can now trigger MS DUN when started without a connection.
    * Fullscreen mode for Mozilla on Linux (press F11).
    * Browser tabs now close left to right (they used to close right to left).
    * The tab bar now has a button for creating new tabs.
    * All Search entry points now use your default search engine.
    * Download Manager has been enabled as the default download view (with many improvements)
    * Autocomplete in the location bar has more intelligent completion.
    * The Linux File Picker has improved filtering and a new directory button.
    * File extensions more accurately handled in downloads and we save the correct files when saving complete Web pages
    * Drag and drop support has been greatly improved.
    * View selection source: Context clicking on a selection now lets you view the HTML source for the selected area.
    * Page info displays more page info with improved General and Media tab content.
    * New button in prefs for making Mozilla the system default browser on MS Windows

    * MathML is now enabled for Mozilla on Macintosh (it was already available on Windows and Linux).
    * Mozilla now takes advantage of Quartz rendering for users of Mac OS X 10.1.5
    * Better Bi-Di Arabic and Hebrew support including improved layout of Arabic pages on Linux and other platforms without their own Arabic shaping support.
    * We have new layout performance enhancements targeted at DHTML.
    * Mozilla now has support for the display of XBM images.

    * Image and plug-in blocking for Mail & News
    * Mozilla allows you to view HTML mail messages as plain text.
    * You can now quote the current message in a Mail compose window with Quote Original under the options menu.

    * The JavaScript Debugger has gone through a major development cycle. It now sports a palette of nine views which can be rearranged within the main window or docked in separate floating windows. It is also possible to create user-defined views and commands directly with JavaScript. More details are available in the FAQ, newsgroup, or IRC channel.
    * Chatzilla has improved tab completion and can now join channels with Japanese names.

    I DLed it before it was posted... it is 10.5 Mo... and you mention 9.8... is it a mistake ?
    Don't take it wrong Iceman, I'm just wondering.

    P.s: Mozilla, not Moxilla.

    Have they fixed the bug that adds wrong file extensions (the one that follows the "content-type" header in the html document) when downloading?

    Re: Mozilla

    It seems to be better than before. I quite often get double file extentions (e.g. blah.mpg.mpeg), but a lot less of the invalid extentions (e.g. trying to download an exe and getting it renamed to a .php). A bugzilla query would probably turn something up, but I'm too lazy :D

    Anyway, I blame the servers :p
