UPDATE! The list has now been featured on both Slashdot and CNET News.com.

More features:

- When a browser window is maximized, the scrollbar is at the right edge of the screen, making it easier to click the scrollbar thumb.

- I can middle-click a link to open the link in a new window (or in a new tab, depending on a pref).

- Frequent releases and nightlies.

- Good support for bookmarklets ( <http://www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/> ), including "test styles" and "zap".

- Support for several CSS features that are especially useful for user style sheets ( <http://www.squarefree.com/userstyles/> ), such as max-width, :before, attribute substring selectors, -moz-outline, and XBL. The list mentions these CSS features (61, 64, 66, 67, 51) but doesn't differentiate them from the author-oriented items surrounding them.
