Firefox 1.0 Targeted for September
The Mozilla Organization has updated the roadmap for Firefox, placing the major 1.0 milestone release on September 14. Three release candidates are scheduled, with RC1 set for August 10. Mozilla's Ben Goodger notes that the final release may slip, but says "it gives us a near term goal to target and then slip from, rather than wait for things to fall into place." Firefox 0.9 was issued last month, being billed as a faster and more secure alternative to Microsoft's Internet Explorer.
