The reviewers liked Mozilla's quicklaunch, tabbed browsing and price, going so far as to suggest that 1.0 'may actually best its two most powerful competitors.'
#2 Uh, bugzilla is not a support tool

Sure if you're an expert you may be able to find the bug related to your problem and there may be some workaround information in that bug... but they're not talking about experts, they're talking about normal users, and unsurprisingly, Mozilla does not provide much in the way of end-user support. Bugzilla is focused on fixing bugs (as it should be), not on helping users work around the problems on their systems.
BTW, gawd that linuxplanet article was crap. Is that supposed to be a serious news site? It didn't seem to say anything at all except 'mozilla is slightly slower than opera, but not enough slower that it matters' and 'installing plugins work'. I presume they don't pay their writers (if they do, they've been ripped off)...
Anyway, good to see the coverage. I think the cnet article (though not completely understanding the mozilla/netscape situation - the writer doesn't seem to release that a new netscape release based on mozilla 1.0 is rather likely) wasn't too bad.
