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 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."

My computer is a 500Mhz AMD, 192 Megs RAM and Win2000 and the current Moz-buil I'm using is 2002070908. It's far from being a "state of the art box", too. But compared to IE5.5 Mozilla is slower on my machine at least in three "disciplines": 1: starting time of the browser, 2: scrolling pages with many images 3: loading time of large html-files: Just try loading the html user manual of mySQL once with mozilla and then with IE (no matter if 5.5 or 6.0). It _is_ awfully slow. You say Mozilla folks shouldn't be expected to support older technology. That's true. They shouldn't support non-performant code. And this will _not_ fix itself. The Mozilla guys always claim that they simply want to create the best browser on earth (or did I get something wrong? If so, please tell me and I will shut up immediately ). To my mind this does include a better speed than f***ing IE on application loading, scrolling and large site viewing.
