For those that haven't already seen it, this build can be downloaded from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/minotaur/. So far, there's only a build for Windows, but I'm sure builds for other OSes will follow pretty soon. It appears to be based upon the Moz1.3b builds numbered 20030313, and has the identifier 'Minotaur/0.1a' on the end of its user agent string. It uses the old Netscape 4.x style Classic theme, and so far I haven't been able to get it to change to the Modern theme. Mind you, this is only a very early build, so I'm sure that theme switching will be fully implemented in the near future. Anyway, if you wanna try it, the URL's there, so go grab a copy!"

I suppose that separating the profile is one of the things that is being worked upon.

Having NS7, Mozilla, Phoenix, and Minotaur all use different profiles is a *very* good thing.

Another good things is setting up the default news, snews, ldap, etc. to Minotaur.

A really cool thing is being able to *override* the default http: protocol and chose whichever browser you want. (This way I can use Mozilla to browse whenever I get a link from a news article but not change the default browser on the system, which may break other programs. :-)
