The auto-show is still in development over in bug 102832. Good places to try it out are Bugzilla buglists, the W3C, htmlhelp.com and many machine-generated manuals or documents, such as the GNU Make manual."

Characterizing Netscape 6.1 as "perfectly stable" is, at best, disingenuous. In my usage it appears to be more stable than Netscape 4.x and possibly more so than IE5.5, but it still crashes FAR too often - still several times a day for me. Better than the several times an hour that NS4.x and IE4/5 do, and maybe roughly where IE5.5 is or possibly a bit better.

The problem is that NS4.x and IE4 are notoriously unstable products. Even IE5 isn't very good on that point. NS6.1 is useable, but its stability can only be described as "aggravating." I suppose it's better than the others mentioned (which would be "infuriating") but it's still not a wonderful recommendation.
