Tabbed windows is nothing new, but I do like being able to open links in a new tab with my middle mouse button, not that my middle finger isn’t getting a good enough work out already 🙂 Tabs do open in the background (another neat feature) but opening links in a new tab using my middle button – the scroll wheel – doesn’t work in OSX. 2002-05-24 6:54 pm there was a security fix between rc1 and rc2, iirc. it has been only 13 days since the rc2 release. the next release will probably be 1.0, or, at least I hope it is. i doubt i’ll post a beos build for this one. 2002-05-24 6:54 pm Darn, I just installed RC2… lol 2002-05-24 7:45 pm can’t see many changes.. chatzilla fells a little better. go mozilla! 2002-05-24 8:03 pm The little annoying bar thing to the left of the screen is blank and won’t close! This is very odd. http://kns.dyndns.org/kevin/mozilla.jpg this is annoying. Other than that RC3 is very nice. I’m looking forward to the BeOS version. 2002-05-24 8:33 pm >the little annoying bar thing to the left of the screen Don’t see it 2002-05-24 9:52 pm is there a option under the view that you can select? hey, do you have to redownload the whole thing, or can you update? 2002-05-24 11:42 pm >>the little annoying bar thing to the left of the screen >Don’t see it look at the screenshot, it’s that blue thing to the left. It where all the tabs with stuff like aim and bookmarks go… 2002-05-24 11:47 pm none of the options seem to remove it… 2002-05-25 1:02 am I just downloaded RC2 for BeOS, and while it’s still buggy, there do seem to be some improvements. RC2 is finally faster than previous releases on my system! 2002-05-25 2:04 am Yeah, it’s great to see how well it’s progressing! 2002-05-25 3:06 pm Still you can’t rightclick the links in PTF to open them in a new tab. Sigh. 2002-05-25 4:04 pm I’d say less buggy and 25 % more stable: crashes now on the 4th click instead of the third. 2002-05-25 6:23 pm “can’t see many changes …” What’s better, bugfixes or new features? I think bugfixes (some m$ employees might think different .. 2002-05-25 6:50 pm Your link isn’t working for me but I *think* I know what you’re talking about. Go to View->Show/Hide/->SideBar Or just press F9. I can’t stand that sidebar thing myself. 2002-05-26 7:35 pm I still think the thing is far to big, far too slow and far too proprietary (and inconsistent and generally stinky) in the UI area. Yet, I am stuck with it as the only up-to-date nearly-compliant browser for BeOS. I do not like it at all.
