New to this release are full-screen mode for Linux, BiDi Hebrew improvements, Arabic shaping improvements for Linux, and significant improvements to Venkman, the best cross-platform JavaScript debugger on the planet. Get your binaries and release notes at http://www.mozilla.org/releases/. And if you're confused about all these alpha and beta releases (and what ever happened to that 1.0 branch?) then take a look at the nice picture available at the Mozilla Development Roadmap."

A Pentium 133? Where do you draw the line? Why not a 486? A 386? A Commodore 64? How much "BLOATED-NESS and the SLUGGISHNESS" does opera show on a 33 Mhz 486 with 8 Meg of Ram? If Netscape 3.0 can run on a 486 why can't Opera 6.04?

When you develop software you are faced with a choice, capability or legacy support. If Opera wants to sacrifice capability to produce a browser that runs on out of date machines fine, but that is no reason that every one else should settle for lowered capabilities because of a tiny minority who wish to hang on to dated equipment.
