This release doesn't contain the crypto code yet. That is still to come. But feel free to download! Currently only Linux and Windows builds available -- more to come. When's the crypto code arriving? "Really, really soon", from what I've heard.

I'm sure there'd be lots of Mac users complaining about not being able to run Mozilla if there was a general problem with it.

What I suspect is that you have some specific software, hardware or configuration on your Mac that's conflicting with Mozilla in some way.

As for the rant mode, I'm sure this has been covered many times before - basically, the native widgets cannot support all of what Mozilla needs to do, so cross-platform widgets are used.

Being a UNIX and occasional PC user, I have no problem with this at all - I'd rather see an app work the same across all platforms than have subtle differences between the platform versions. If this means sacrificing some native look-n-feel for the sake of ease of maintenance, then so be it.

If Mac users don't like the look of Mozilla, they can stick with MSIE (or even the dreadful NS 4.X series) of course - no-one's forcing it on them.
