Unofficial builds of Firefox 1.0

Trunk open thread

How are Firefox trunk builds?

Firefox 1.0 Released

There have been no changes since the previous Burning Edge post (2004-11-07 branch builds). Firefox 1.0 is the same file as that build, at least for the Windows English zip build (I checked using md5sum).

There is one surprise: Firefox's default home page now redirects to a co-branded version of the Google homepage. Mitchell explains:

In keeping with our emphasis on the end-user, we have redesigned the Firefox startpage. We wanted a startpage that reflected the Mozilla project and provided a good access point to the web. Given the importance of search, we decided to add search functionality to the start page itself. Google has long been recognized as a leader in search experience and so we chose Google.
