Apprunner, the future of Navigator, is now included in the nightly builds from Mozilla.org. The new UI is in place and is quickly being brought up to speed. RDF/XUL are now in place and working, and the toolbars are now appearing, pictures and all, with everything but the bookmarks and What's Related buttons working.
Along with this, we have updated our fetchBuilds section so that you get the latest working builds from Mozilla.org. Before, if a build broke, the link to the latest build also broke, and you would have to dig around the older builds for the last built binary.
Do the Linux builds still require GTK 1.1.x, or can they work on GTK 1.0.x as well?

I too would like to see some new screenshots -- especially of the positioning:fixed examples.
I wish I could try it live. Goddamn proxy! Can anyone testify as to the speed of the beast?
AppRunner's been in the mac build for quite a while, hasn't it?

I managed to get Mozilla to run through a proxy ny copying my prefs.js from my user directory to the Mozilla\bin directory (on Win32). It definately seems faster than NN4/IE5

Sounds just damn cool! GNU/Linux rocks too much as well does Free software in general!
You can find screenshots of apprunner and css fixed positioning here: <http://www.pimpmaster.org/~simeon/mozilla/shots/> enjoy!
M$ has started the "Countdown to IE5" where is mozilla? Don't get me wrong, I'm a NS fan! I just wanna know if we have a long or a short way to go...
