I've ony had one crash in the two weeks I've been using it, and that was with the first build I downloaded. Since then it's been solid. My thanks to Blake & Co!

However, as Asa said, it's pretty hacked up at the moment, so large bits are missing, particularly when it comes to the prefs. To be honest though, the default prefs are so good (middle click opens a tab in the background - yay!) that I've only really missed two things:

1) Being able to assign Ctrl+MouseWheel to change the text size. This is the default behaviour in IE, and it isn't assigned to anything else by default in Mozilla or Phoenix.

2) The password manager, but that's coming back in some form or other anyway.

Oh, and would someone explain to me the rationale for having tabs close the other way round to Moz?

Anyway, my advice would be to give it a spin, it's nice!
