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.'
#5 Yep! Much better.

That article only appears to refer to 0.9.8, not the new 1.0rc1 - but it is indeed much better written. Thanks.
It definitely looks like a consensus is beginning to emerge about Mozilla's killer features: they are tabbed browsing (which I don't use but fair enough, everyone else likes it) and turning off popups.
Which begs an interesting question - is Netscape 6.5 (or whatever) going to include the popup disabling features? Given that Netscape/AOL presumably still make some money from online advertising, this would be interesting if they are included... but then, if they are omitted, that would be losing one of the product's two killer features (and probably the more important one).
