    I remember reading somewhere it's targetted for Nov. 10. Not sure about the accuracy of the source though.

    from mozillazine:

    New Zealand IT weekly Computerworld has an interview with Mozilla Firefox lead Ben Goodger. The discussion covers the philosophy behind Firefox, competition with Microsoft and the state of the New Zealand IT industry. It also notes that the release of Firefox 1.0 is scheduled for Tuesday 9th Nov.

    Well between your two posts, it can be that far away. Even if it gets released in the next week I'll be happy.

    Is this the best browser ever??

    The Moox optimized versions are 100% faster for me on some web pages.

    I can never notice the difference here. I have 2048kbps ADSL. I hope the new release has a fix for the problem im having with viewing GIF animations and image attachments. Now i have IE, Opera, and Firefox (stable) and all just decided not to show GIF animations anymore.
    Get Quintessential player, the alternative to winamp! ( www.quinnware.com )

    What I meant was 100% faster than "Official" Firefox builds.
