As this build is using the RTM branch from November with a few fixes, which are also in the trunk, we advise you stick to nightly builds. Check the build bar to find links to the most recent builds.

I use NS6 in order to port cross-browser DHTML to this new DOM-compliant client.

While NS6 could have been released as another preview, its hyped release helped significantly to educate both authoring tool developers and Web developers concerning the degree of parity between NS6 and IE5+. (And the marked lack of backward compatibility with Nav4.x.)

I just wish that the script parsing and dynamic rendering wasn't so bloody slow compared to IE.
