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.


#4 N6 - why too soon?

netscape should have waited until mozilla 1.0 is ready. They should have spent the time between november and whenever M1.0 comes out to whip up a bunch of hype and expectation about M1.0/N6.

That way N6 would have gotten all kinds of media attention and on release would have wowed everyone.

As they did it, it probably lost many users. A crying shame.
