I do not understand why erverybody is so happy with this new PR3 release???

A couple of things that irritate me: Main: -It is still a lot slower then IE 5.0. -It is still a lot slower then NS 4.7x -Where the hell have the Cascading stylsheets level 2 went to?? In PR2 there was and now there isn\\\\\\\'t. It doesnt matter if this is a W3C standard, halve the world is using mouseovers etc. What the hell is wrong at Netscape Inc? Do they need a good project leader? I volunteer!

Visual bugz: -The netscape starting window is resizable??? Where the hell is that for. It also looks very cheap! -The interface is a bit slow when interacting with other windows (and yes i have 400MB in this machine). -Is this the winning Theme of the interface CONTEST! What a CRAP... Sliderbars that are dissapearing when moving up and down, when clicking on My side bar and clicing on a purple folder the folder dissapears. -The preferences menus and pulldown menus are slow.. why? Because of this the application interface doesn\\\\\\\'t feel ROBUUT!!.. I think these guys can learn a lot from \\\\\\\"Fundamentals of software engineering, Ghezzi\\\\\\\". -Why are all the popup windows located at the top of the screen???

Good things: -The DOM render engine (seems to render correct). -MySite bar. -Tiny Personal toolbar. -Customizable interface. -Storage of forms, great! But also a point of discussion about security.

At last: we probably need a PR4, up to PR20 to have a final version in my opinion. Meanwhile i keep working with NS4.7x and sometimes when sites need more I.E. 5.x.

I hope my English was understandable.
