I must say that I am pleased and impressed with the progress made in the last few weeks. The -turbo option was really needed. On my system, Mozilla now loads faster than IE most of the time.
I am also very happy that (finally) non-Latin web pages are rendered reasonably well. Although some works still needs to be done, Arabic pages are completely readable. Mozilla is certainly becoming more stable with every passing day.
I have been a critic of overzealous optimism in the past, but I believe that Mozilla is finally close to its 1.0 release. The end of the 1.0 development marathon marks the beginning of another marathon, that of user-acceptance and enhancements. I believe that Mozilla is well positioned for it. Good job for the developer of this amazing product.
