mozilla.org has just released Mozilla 1.5 Beta. Amongst the usual improvements, there's a range of Mail & Newsgroups enhancements and a major ChatZilla update. This is also the first milestone to include a spellchecker. Grab a build from the mozilla.org Releases Page (or direct from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.5b) and check out the Mozilla 1.5 Beta Release Notes for more information.

I've been asked to supply some more information about the usability study. All I know is in the first comment of bug 203960: "From a usability study we've learned that users find it confusing that bookmarkgroups open in additional tabs instead of replacing the existing set of tabs."

I imagine the confusion arose because unlike other bookmarks in all browsers since the year dot, bookmark groups didn't cause the current page to change, possibly making it seem like nothing had happened. Or something.
