You use words like "impressive", "perfect" and "outstanding".

Taking into account that Netscape 4.x was lightyears behind IE 4.0 and that Netscape 4.x compared to Mozilla/Netscape 6 gets performance charts like this <http://mozilla.org/qualit…/bookmarks-13apr2001.html> and the fact that Microsoft is going to release IE 6.0 before Mozilla 1.0 is released is what makes me NOT use those kinds of words.

The rendering engine has some bugs but is starting to get there - that I agree on. I also agree on that page loading speeds (even now for SSL thanks to PSM 2.0, which was a MAJOR problem for me) are starting to get in shape. The user interface speed and quality is in extremely bad shape however and I've seen very little progress in that area (except for the outliner widget) in the past 12 months!

For me, no matter how much I'd like to, Mozilla is nowhere near usable for daily use yet. I'm getting worried.
