Eric Hodel has written a new sidebar panel that displays the links of the page as a clickable list. Check it out at his website

Asa wants to remind you, "Don't forget to check out the BuildBar and comments for the most up to date build status you can get without getting on IRC. Daily build status usually contains information on any new features, major bugs, major bug fixes and contribution highlights.."

Last but not least, Will Sargent pointed us to an experimental script that allows you to create a Mozilla sidebar panel for an RSS data source of your choice.

mozilla.org provides courtesy binaries of the Mozilla browser for QA and testing purposes. "if you are using Mozilla as your standard browser..." then why are you updating daily? If you are not updating daily then the comments over a few days or a week should give you a pretty good idea which build is the most useable as a day to day browser and that day's thumb direction shouldn't affect you one way or the other. But let me say it again, we do not provide daily binaries for this purpose. Our daily builds are for development and testing, not for end user browsing. I spend a couple hours each morning downloading and testing win32, mac and linux mozilla builds and update the buildbar as a courtesy for people who are working to make mozilla better. It wouldn't be worth my time to cater to folks who don't give back so don't expect me to stop with the pep talk comments any time soon. See, here's how it works. If you aren't helping to make Mozilla better, then your needs don't mean much to me. And if you're looking for an end user browser then wait for Netscape 6.
