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."

I run the absolute latest nightly daily on 2 distinctly different boxes.

1. 933mhz Pentium 3 with 384MB RAM running Windows XP. 2. 400mhz Pentium 2 with 256MB RAM running Windows XP.

I wouldn't call either of these boxes "state of the art", yet Mozilla is far from slow on either machine. In fact, the 400mhz box previously worked fine with 128MB RAM.

You didn't mention what your computer is. I hope you don't say "Pentium 233MHZ with 64MB RAM running Windows 95"...

Which brings up another issue. The Mozilla folks shouldn't be expected to support older technology. As time goes on, everyone upgrades their computers. Why concentrate on fixing something that will fix itself?
