It's still too early for any useful data comparing 0.9.2.1 and 0.9.3 mtbf numbers. My gut feeling is that the two are very close. We quite a few crasher fixes in the 0.9.3 cycle and endgame that were not landed on the 0.9.2 branch leading up to 6.1/0.9.2.1 but we also took hundreds of other fixes, some of which might have been destabilizing. In the end I'd say that if you want a browser for regular use get Netscape 6.1 (that's what it's there for). If you are interested in helping out with Mozilla testing get a recent nightly build, 0.9.3 or wait for 0.9.4 which isn't too far off.
