Mozilla 1.3 Alpha is out!

There's also improvements to the DOM Inspector and lots of other bug fixes. However, remember that this is only an alpha release, so expect bugs.

"I would like to propose that 1.4 be dedicated to bug fixing, memory leak analysis, regression testing, and performance optimization"

I agree. I think Mozilla is feature complete enough where now its time to fix many of the lingering bugs which have been around for a while. I also think there are regressions that are causing memory and stability problems that were not there recently.
