#12 What I'm using... And a hint to Netscape

IE crashes often enough, and even though each window's in a separate process it takes my desktop with it every time.
I successfully used Moz0.8.1 for banking on my bank's SSL site.
BTW, yes it's still got some serious bugs and still a long way to go. But it's still complete enough at this point to at least DEMONSTRATE more than just the potential to lap IE. Yes, it isn't NEAR ready enough to seriously compete with IE, but this milestone release is showing that it most certainly will be by 1.0.
My enthusiasm does have a dash of realism. Now the REAL reality check is whether Netscape dooms the 1.0 release by calling it "Netscape version 6.anything". The name "Netscape 6" has just been destroyed by their unstable fork.
That's where I'm still crossing my fingers.
