Here's a link to Firebird's new homepage. Nice redesign!http://www.mozilla.org/products/firebird/Everyone, get all 3 releases! Mozilla 1.5, Firebird 0.7 and Thunderbird 0.3. They are all extremely shlick and stable. :thumbsup:and here is a nice comparison chart for Firebird, Mozilla 1.5, old netscape, Opera and IE6.http://www.mozilla.org/products/firebird/compare/note: they're being a bit too generous to IE6. Cookie Manager? Since when the heck does IE manage cookies? its got one feature to block all 3rd party cookies. It has nothing close to site-per-site cookie manager like any of the other browsers have.

I opened Firebird this morning and boy was I surprised! The homepage is completely redone and I like it. Firebird is awesome, but I'm not a huge fan of the Mozilla Suite too much...Firebird is just right :blink: Glad to see another stable release we can point new users to!

It's easy to fix the theme. I can fix it for you if you like (or find an already fixed version)

Slashdot kicked the crap out of MozillaZine and Mozilla.org with an atricle that links to mozillazine and mozilla.org.
Ahh.... how it stinks to be Slashdotted!

If you would like processor-specific builds (slightly optimized), check out this link... He's using the official 0.7 source code, and just uses different optimizations for different processors... I've found that the Atlhlon builds run a fair amount quicker on my system. :(http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=29396He's got self-extracting exe files (using 7zip) or zip files :thumbsup:

I knew the bandwidth was going to be an issue today - got 0.7 and love it, downloading Thunderbird - took a few tries to connect but it went thru and downloading at 25KB - of course these are both for linux, I haven't downloaded the windows versions yet, I figure those can wait.Prelude I hear ya on the P2P - it's not all bad, just has a bad rep is all, just like people saying the internet is nothing but porn and spam :thumbsup:

I've tried multiple times today at work and now at home. No luck at all. I guess I'll just wait until next week and try again. :thumbsup:

Just to chime in, man, is it fast on a P4 running @2.16 GHz! :rolleyes: Next stop will be the GTK2+/XFT optimized build on an AthlonXP/Red Hat Linux 9 box.

What, precisely, is Mozilla? I use Thundirbird and Firebird, but there seems to be a separate download called Mozilla. Is Mozilla a suite of both? Is there any added content?
