Gecko 1.9a4 Released, Mac OS X Improvements

Gecko 1.9a4 has been released and it comes with a significant amount of progress on Mac OS X. I’m not going to list of individual bugs here but this alpha should be much better than 1.9a3 in the areas of focus handling, rendering speed/correctness, and IME input. If you were waiting for things to mature a bit before trying these alphas, this might be a good time to jump in.

Despite this progress, this is still an alpha release and you should expect alpha quality. We still have a lot of work in the pipeline and we’re hoping for a great Gecko 1.9a5 release in a month!

  1. I assume much of the progress comes from your work on Cairo’s Quartz back end?

    I just took a spin through the alpha. Great work! I’m now getting more excited about Gecko 1.9.
