Independent Status Reports (13 April, 2004)
By Brian King
The Mozilla Newsletter is getting bigger and better. Upcoming plans include a second newsletter aimed at developers, other distribution formats, and more translations. Personally I am excited about the PDF version. Think of this situation; if even only 1 developer in all mid-to-large size software companies read Mozilla Links, print out the newslettter and leave it in their company canteen or common area. Casual readers would have a look on their coffee break and who knows what could happen from there. Subscribe now for all the latest news and tips from the Mozilla world.
Dictionary Search - v0.5
(Looks up or translates words in a Web page or an email using an online dictionary)
Dictionary Search provides a very easy way to lookup or translate a word in a Web page or in an email. Version 0.5 adds support for Thunderbird and Mozilla Mail.
If you like to translate the user interface of Dictionary Search to your own language, you can drop me a mail. You will need to translate about 25 sentences.
wmlbrowser - v0.6
View WML (Wireless Markup Language) pages in Mozilla or Firefox
wmlbrowser 0.6 is released. This version displays images in WML pages, and loads long pages correctly. Additionally, browser functionality such as Back, Forward, and View Page Source now works correctly in all cases.
