I'm really loving RC1. I've completely uninstalled 1.5.0.7. First of all, RC1 is fast and stable on my machine. No crashes or glitches. Nothing out of place or missing in the interface. And all my user data migrated over nicely and shows up fine. What I like are the spellcheck (I could not get Spellbound to work in 1.5.0.7); the session saver; and what seems like increased speed. I'm even getting used to the separate close buttons on each tab. It's superior to the previous way tabs were handled. Managing bookmarks is easier now too with the double panes (or did I just miss that feature in previous releases?). So kudos to the team of developers who put this out. It puts Microsoft to shame. IE is an ancient slug compared to RC1.
