George,

I downloaded NN4.5 using IE5 Beta 2 and had no problems except, the hoped for support of CSS1 and CSS2 and the redraw issues mentioned by Steve are not in NN4.5 so please hurry up with NN5, I have customers who insist on Netscape and the things they want that are very simple and powerful in IE4-5 just don't exist in NN4.x.

PS - I've tried some of the stress test stuff with IE5 and the speed has improved a great deal, but there are still some quirks with CSS box stuff.
