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."

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.
