Maybe it won't be as good as IE6, I really don't know since what I've seen of IE5 on other people's computers has been enough to keep me away from it. And that still doesn't make it standards compliant - which is what i REALLY want.

Some of us want a browser that doesn't take over your whole computer, and doesn't have virtually nil security. Opera is a really good browser, but with the glaring advertizement problem, or paying for it (I'm really broke here). Besides which some people like me look foreward to being able to do some tweaking such as removing things from the mouse menu.
