And the pigs are flying today  
Mozilla 1.0 was released today. Download it and give it a try.

A web browser. A few years ago, Netscape gave their code (for netscape communicator 4) to the community, and named it "the Mozilla project". After the Mozilla team tried to work with the Netscape code, they eventually decided it was crap and scrapped the whole thing. Since then, they have built this browser from scratch.

Netscape 6 was basically an EARLY beta of Mozilla, with a lot of AOL crap added on. Since then, they have improved stability and performance a great deal, and added a few new features (including my favorite: tabbed browsing).

Unfortunately, the site seems to have been hammered to oblivion. There was a HUGE party in San Jose last night celebrating the 1.0 release, with satelite parties in most major cities. I imagine a lot of Geeks With Hangovers slashdotted the site today.

After we get your computer online, we might set it up and play with it a bit, see what you think.
