Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has announced the release of Firefox 8 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Firefox for Android. This release appears to be a relatively minor update. Perhaps the main feature of this update is the ability for user control over third-party addons. "At Mozilla, we think you should be in control, so we are disabling add-ons installed by third parties without your permission and letting you pick the ones you want to keep." A detailed technical description of this new Firefox release can be found in the release notes.

f--k you Mozilla. You're the new Netscape.


You are 100% correct. Mozilla was a fork of Netscape Navigator.

Mozilla was the rendering engine of Netscape navigator if I remember correctly.
