Reasons: 1. It's acceptably fast to render (NT and Win 98, 128 Mb) 2. JAVA. 3. Standards support. 4. Cut and paste in the URL bar. 5. Print. 6. New classic skin makes the app look slick. 7. Mail works. 8. It renders Delphi correctly, and I can sometimes reply to messages there.

Basically, because this is the first incarnation that looks and feels like a real browser that NS has put forth. Not everything is there. Not everything that is there works all the time. But it's starting to feel like a real product (it also kicks PR 2's butt!). It's tantilizingly close to real, and it's functional more than 75% of the time. I'm stoked.
