Netscape 6.1 is Good Enough. It's got a few bugs and some features aren't quite properly finished yet but it's a fine browser all the same.

Even if it's not quite there, it's still infinitly better than 6.0/6.01. Netscape needed to release an improved version of Netscape 6 and they needed to do it before IE6 is launched (next Wednesday, I believe). This browser admirably fills the role.

The feedback I've seen has been pretty good. Comments along the line of "This is the browser 6.0 should have been." Anyway, 0.9.2.1 is pretty close to 1.0 and I'm sure we'll see further releases in the future.
