About Alpha Release
The version of the Mozilla Accessibility Extension available here implements special functionality related to the upcoming W3C DHTML Accessibility standards. Don't bother downloading this unless you're involved with these issues; the regular release is more useful, up-to-date, and bug-free for 99% of present-day web accessibility issues.
There are enough major bugs in this version to keep the developer busy at the moment. Please wait to submit bugs until the extension has reached a more mature state. However, reasonable feature requests or design/UI "bugs" are welcome; please email Brian (firstname.lastname@example.org).
