ok, it's not perfect, but there are many good features, e.g. look at the sidebar with the search-tab and the news tabs available! IMO it was a good decision to release NS 6.0 NOW, because FINALLY we have got a browser with nearly full standard compliance: As a web designer you can use all the css-stuff you couldn't realize in NS4.x - i know ns 4.x isn't out of world at the moment but it'll be very few people using 4.x-releases in a year or so. Ok, it's really bad, that the "position: fixed" isn't fully implemented and that proxy-support isn't implemented good (problems saving mail/news passwords; problems _installing_ with smartupdate, with proxys enabled, too,...) but I think you should see it as a 1.0 release, not a 6.0 release. I hope (and yes, I do believe it) in the 6.1 release "File bookmark as..." will be included and the performance will be better (mem usage is ok for me).
