The moment you've all been waiting for has arrived! We've found someone to take over some of the subsections of the site, and get them updated. The first page that's been updated is the Screenshots page. A huge thank you goes out to Michael Hendy who will be maintaining both the screenshots page and the Fetch Builds page, which should be updated later this week.
Along with this, we're doubling down on our efforts to post timely news and keep you better informed of what's happening. As part of this effort, we're continuing to work on getting general discussion forums set up, and hope to have that done soon.
In other site news, our poll asking you about Mozilla news sites was pulled down today, after having someone skew the results by voting 200 times for one site (us. We know we've been slacking a bit of late, but not that badly :). We'll be working on getting better polling software, and will put a new poll up when that is taken care of. Stay Tuned.
#20 Wow. Nightly builds are rocking.

I just got the 2001091022 rpm build on Linux, and it rocks my world.
It's been about 5 days since I've tested the builds, and I can't quite describe it quantitatively, but something is definitely a lot faster. Page loading and scrolling in particular feels less jerky.
In fact, I would go so far as to say it kicks the ass of any other browser I've tried on my machine: Netscape 4.7, IE 5.5 and 6 under Windows ME. It's not a particularly high end machine either. AMD k6-2 450, 128 MB RAM. I would probably attribute the speed ups to memory leak fixes and other tuning.
