First off, I relise that 6.1 is a beta, however, version 6 was not. It was official. I think it's about time NS got back up to speed with the Moz crew, but I'm just worried that a 6.1 beta, which may have been a lot more stable (though I realise that it is, at the moment, very stable) than previous versions, could have the opportunity to be even better if they held off the week and a bit until the .9.2 release.

I'm in no way slagging off about Moz, but NS is treading a fine line between possible reemergence in the browser field as a serious competitor to MSIE, and being considered not worthwhile based on past indiscressions. Very worrying... (for me at least).
