I thought some of you would be interested in seeing this page I found on a very cutting-edge Firefox support site.
[squarefree.com...]
Lots of good stuff to look forward to in Firefox 1.1, especially if there are any little bugs that are annoying you. Enjoy!

Very interesting.

Do you know how accurate this information is?

Mozilla now supports a CSS at-rule for matching on site/document URL. This makes site-specific user style rules possible.

This alone is the major breakthrough many users have been waiting for. Previously, you had to pester the webmaster to add an ID to their body tag if you wanted to overwrite the styles on a page. Now any website can be changed (think: made more accessible) on a site-by-site basis.

An example might be making the text on Slashdot non-italic, so it's easier to read.

These are the types of features that will help Firefox gain even more momentum. Hopefully the update list is legitimate.

It appears to mirror some things I knew were coming anyway. Just think what Firefox 2.0 will offer!

Looks good, particularly some of those CSS3 additions. Hope they're fixing the find-as-you-type form-field bug.

Sadly, 1.1 has now been delayed from it's scheduled March timetable:

In a move that I would hope should surprise exactly nobody,

Good move, I'd rather have that.. aren't we all fed up of betas that promise a lot (jam tomorrow) but don't deliver?
does a version number matter any more?

to my mind, it's "tuck head down" time and produce goods rather than numbers.. in this case it's so far so good and I wish you (FF) continuing Good Luck & Management

Well there are some important improvements due in 1.1 that are needed to help win over more diehard (or just plain lazy) IE users. I hope they get it out before late April. They only have about half a year more to get enough momentum before Microsoft tries to fight back and we all have to start coding yet-more work arounds for IE7 or some kind of IE 6.5 :(

My best hope is that many of the "Fortune 500" will finally say enough-is-enough and mandate Firefox on their 1000+ user networks, which will carry over to those employees trying it on their home PCs. It's the best way to start trickling over into the general mainstream (for now).

Timetable is now updated for a June 2005 version 1.1 release :)
There are at least 71 outstanding bugs [bugzilla.mozilla.org] they need to swatt by then.
